Than Clan One Year Anniversary

The Than Clan will be celebrating its one year anniversary as a club! We will be welcoming new and returning students to a social event, where members can enjoy icebreaker games and meaningful conversations about all things related to life and death. We will be providing food and beverages (so don't bring a lunch this day!), and will be having a party where students can meet other students interested in death, dying, and bereavement. 

Please pass this along to any other students (new or old), and any friends interested in the topics of death, dying and bereavement. It's going to be a great opportunity to meet other students in the program, and best of all FREE food! 

This event will take place at the Student Vitali Lounge in Wemple on Tuesday, January 26th from 4 - 6 p.m. 

We can't wait to see you there!

The Regis is on stands! This issue is all about students, aka, YOU - your voice, your opinion, and things that affect you. Be sure to pick up your copy and read what students here at King's have to say about the happenings of today's society.

Yoga for all levels will be offered upstairs in the Reflection Room of the Student Life Centre from 12:00 - 1:00 p.m. on Wednesdays beginning January 13th and continuing through the semester. (With the exception of February 11th and 18th, which are cancelled for the spring break). Please try to arrive at least 5- 10 minutes early to secure a spot.

Whether you are a student, staff, friend, or faculty member, please join us for a hatha yoga class taught by Kings graduate Kate Lawson, a certified yoga instructor with over 9 years experience. This is an opportunity to release, de-stress, loosen up and feel good in your body while relaxing your mind!

Comfortable, non-restrictive clothing is recommended, but feel free to wear anything from jeans to dress pants to leggings. There are extra mats but if you have a yoga mat, please bring it along. There will be options for everyone, so feel free to come out whether you are a beginner or a long time practitioner.

If you have any questions about the class please email Kate at klawso2@uwo.ca.

Please join your colleagues on Friday, January 29 for our next Faculty Research Seminar. Dr. Imants Baruss of the Department of Psychology will be presenting a talk entitled, "The Boundary Problem." The Seminar will take place 12-1:30 p.m. in Dante Lenardon 112, and lunch will be provided. 
Open Submissions for Publication
The Department of Political Science's undergraduate journal, The Social Contract, has opened submissions for the publication of its 10th volume. Submissions are open to all undergraduate students, regardless of faculty. In order to submit, you do not need to be enrolled in the Political Science program, but your paper must have been written for an undergraduate Political Science course, or for a related program such as American Studies or International Relations at Western Main Campus, King's, Huron or Brescia. The paper you submit may be from the current school year or from a previous year but must have received a grade of 80% or above. Only one submission per person is permitted. The sections are as follows:
  • Canadian Politics
  • International Relations 
  • Comparative Politics
  • Public Administration and Local Government 
  • Political Theory
Please submit a hard copy of your original marked paper (with grade clearly indicated) to Professor Nigmendra Narain, Room 4149, Social Sciences Centre, in a folder with your name, student number, email address, and the section to which you wish to submit written on the front. If Professor Narain is not in his office, you may slide your folder under his door. Please ensure that you either submit a photocopy of your original paper or make a copy for yourself, as papers will not be returned once submitted. Your paper must be submitted as it was to your course instructor, meaning a works cited and/or bibliography must be included. Double check that your name is on both the hard and electronic copies.
Please also submit an electronic copy of your essay to the official gmail of The Social Contract at "thesocialcontract2016@gmail.com". All essays that have been previously submitted through the Turnitin.com website will still be accepted.

Proclaiming Justice With Integrity: Weekend experience in Toronto
This annual social justice experience will be held in Toronto, from January 29th - January 31st, 2016. This experience provides students and Campus Ministry teams with the tools and support they need to become leaders for social justice on their campuses and in the world community. The weekend's events will include a discussion of Pope Francis' encyclical Laudato Si, an exploration of social justice as it is experienced through art featuring a tour of the Donovan Collection, presentations by a variety of national and international organizations about social justice including L'Arche, Scarboro Foreign Missions, Jesuit Volunteers of Canada, Jesuit Volunteers International, Romero House and Development and Peace. For more information or to register please go to : http://www.cccm.ca/proclaiming-justice-with-integrity-2016

The cost is $150. Limited funds are available to offset transportation costs. Preference will be given to participants from campuses who have not previously attended the weekend. The request for travel bursaries is included in the registration form. 

For more information please contact Annette Donovan Panchaud in Campus Ministry, W149a, 519-433-3491 ext. 4423 or annette.donovanpanchaud@kings.uwo.ca.

Simple Living! So that others may simply live
Small group discussions will begin on campus dealing with the issue of simple living. The group will be using the guide Living with Limits, Living Well! which was prepared by the Jesuit Forum for Social Faith and Justice and published by CCCB Publications. This workbook will guide the group in engaging on the interconnectedness of poverty, inequality, globalization, ecology and spirituality. It is a great way to begin a spiritual reflection on Pope Francis' call to move away from a 'throwaway culture,' that is based on over-consumption. There will be opportunities for each of us to reflect on these implications for our own lives, share ideas and build solidarity among ourselves and with those directly impacted by these realities. The group will meet for 7 consecutive weeks beginning the week of February 1st and ending the week of March 20th. There will not be a meeting during reading week. Students will have the opportunity to choose a day and time that works for them. 

If you are interested in participating in these small group discussions, please contact Annette Donovan Panchaud in Campus Ministry, W149a, 519-433-3491 ext 4423 or annette.donovanpanchaud@kings.uwo.ca . Thank you for your commitment to living justly in the world!
