Dr. Marc Renaud



In this year's Sorokin Lecture - the 30th annual presented by the Department of Sociology - Dr. Marc Renaud, president of the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council since 1997, will examine the evolution of universities, with an eye to the future.

He will give the lecture, entitled "Universities for Tomorrow - from the Ivory Tower to the Main Square," on Thursday, February 4, in 143 Arts, beginning at 8 p.m.

A professor of sociology at the Université de Montréal since 1975, Renaud is the author of seven books and more than 60 scholarly articles addressing social aspects of health. He's been an invited speaker at scores of conferences in both North America and Europe and has served as a consultant to various government commissions and health-related task forces.
