For the fifth consecutive year, an Arts & Science student has received the honour of the Drs. Jolie Ringash and Glen Bandiera Renaissance Award, which offers students up to $25,000 to pursue interests and experiential learning opportunities outside their area of study. This year’s recipient is fourth-year Artsci student Tai Jacob.
For their project, Tai will produce a podcast, titled “Gender Blender,” focused on the experiences of those going through gender transition. Tai will be exploring the concept of gender and the types of journeys people take as they explore the complexity of gender. The podcast, based on interviews in trans communities in Toronto, Montreal, New York, and Chicago, will be available on iTunes.
