  • Watching the watchers: Edward Snowden talks surveillance and security in Dal lecture
    Whistleblower Edward Snowden earned international infamy when he leaked secret documents that revealed the extent of global surveillance culture. Last week, speaking via livestream to a packed house as part of Dal Alumni Days, Snowden discussed the rise of the surveillance state — and what a “digital arms race” means for our future.
  • Opening a dialogue
    Dal Alumni Days featured Open Dialogue events that engaged alumni and other guests in thought-provoking discussions around some of the most pressing issues of our age, including immigration and health care — and some of the boundary-breaking ways Dal researchers and community partners are helping address them.
  • Busting the myth that Canadians are polarized on climate and immigration
    As Canada approaches its federal election, political pundits have been warning of a polarized war among Canadians. But a new survey from Dal researchers Howard Ramos and Rachel McLay tells a story of unity.
  • Grad Profile: Finding meaning in the music
    William (Liam) Clarke completed a double major in International Development Studies and Music at Dal, focussing on the representation of global poverty and development through music in NGO videos — a great example of the potential for interdisciplinarity in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences.
