In 1929 Virginia Woolf predicted that women in "another century or so," if given the opportunity and rooms of their own, will have "the habit of freedom and the courage to write exactly what we think" and see "human beings in relation to reality." Such opportunities are now more tangible for some, more elusive for others.

Experts from Canada, Chile, Germany, Scotland and the US will speak on such issues as climate change, ocean acidification and coral reefs, the increase in ocean dead zones, scientific and social dynamics during fisheries crises, how we all play a role in the collapse of coastal fisheries, and environmental issues surrounding offshore petroleum resource development. There will be opportunities for questions and discussion. Dr.

99.9% of the visible material in the universe is made of quarks and yet we know surprisingly little about them. For example, the mass of the electron is known to a tiny fraction of a percent; that of the up or down quarks has a factor of two uncertainty. The reason for the difficulty is that quarks are never seen as free particles, but are inextricably bound together by the strong force that in turn holds the atomic nucleus together.

Dr. Jeremy McNeil, the Helen Battle Professor in the biology department of the University of Western Ontario, studies the reproductive biology of migrating insects, as well as the interactions between insects, their natural enemies and plants. He investigates the role that naturally occurring chemicals in plants and insects play in interactions within and between different species.
