On Nov. 22, along with QPOC Winnipeg and Black Space Winnipeg, we'll be hosting the first Uniter Speakers Series event of this season.
It’s hard to believe we’re three-quarters of the way through what we call “fall” already.
Sometimes it can feel like the word “community” is used so much that it’s become a feel-good buzzword.
On Nov. 30, we’ll celebrate your favourite people, places and things, but first, we need your votes to determine the winners!
Like many others on campus, we took a week off from our usual routine. But we’re back to producing The Uniter on a weekly basis again, with a few extra flourishes.
One of our goals with The Uniter is to start conversations that aren’t happening in other publications, and to tell stories that open up new spaces for learning and discovery.
Who runs the news?
We’re beginning our new rotation of columnists, and I look forward to sharing their first pieces over the next four weeks.
Early September’s a busy time, on campus and off. Around the U of W, halls are more crowded, bookstore lineups stretch out longer, and pudding seems to be flying off the shelves in Riddell Hall.
We’re back for another amazing year at The Uniter - it’s our 72nd, if you’re counting human or newspaper years, and our 14th, if you’re counting dog years. This is our annual back-to-school issue, so we thought we’d go for a lighter-hearted, upbeat cover story.
When it comes to summer festivals, we have an abundance of choice here in Manitoba.
This, our last regular-ish paper of the year, is somewhat unconventional.
We’re hiring another position for the fall – and perhaps some of you are wondering, “Why does The Uniter hire so often? Is there some nasty secret here in the basement of the Bulman Centre that drives aspiring writers and journalists away?”
Certain story topics may seem frivolous or unserious at first glance. But our job at The Uniter is to look beyond the superficial and to inform readers about the deeper meaning and wider impacts of the stories we tell, while also enjoying the work we put into telling them.
It may seem a little early to be thinking about the fall, but we are. We’re currently hiring for five positions that will start in late August of 2017.
On the cover this week, we’re exploring more unconventional approaches to learning, but the dialogue around how we learn inside and outside of the classroom continues throughout this issue.
Welcome to our special online-only reading week issue of The Uniter!
These days, the line between our online and “real” lives can get more and more blurry.
Learning is rarely a solitary practice, even though we’ve come to believe that it is.
Culture can mean art, but it also includes beliefs, ways of life, patterns of thinking and all the behaviours specific to a smaller or larger group. But let’s leave the defining to the dictionary - why are we so focused on covering culture at The Uniter?
