Brock Media Clips for Thursday, Sept. 7

Here’s a look at some of the media attention Brock University received recently.

Girls and power in the age of Trump: American broadcaster WNYC included research by Brock’s Shauna Pomerantz in its series on modern-day activism. That also led to Pomerantz being featured in Fortune magazine with a quote of the day saying: “Don’t we want to encourage girls? Aboslutely. But they have to be armed with the realities of our culture.”

Sarah Argue of Rock of Arts: Brock alumna Sarah Argue was featured by Ottawa Community News. After graduating from Brock’s Dramatic Arts program, Argue launched her own travelling puppet show, Rock of Arts.

Spirits awaken at indigenous celebration: The St. Catharines Standard wrote a story about the late Suzanne Rochon-Burnett, an honorary doctorate recipient at Brock University whose art is being displayed in an exhibition at the Marilyn I. Walker School of Fine and Performing Arts. Rochon-Burnett’s passion for indigenous art is living on through the work of her daughter, Michele-Elise Burnett.
