This collection holds the award winners for the Langara Open Student Scholar Prize. Launched in 2020, this prize celebrates exemplary work being done by Langara students and offers them the opportunity to share their work in an Open Access format.
Institutional repositories like our own LaIR provide a platform for scholars to make their work more accessible to a wider audience, enabling knowledge sharing and creation on a larger scale. Students engage in scholarship every term as they complete assignments for courses; doing research, authoring papers, or creating works of art. We hope to give exemplary projects life beyond the classroom and make them available to the larger Langara community and beyond.
To paint a universal picture of and attach value to women’s lives globally by telling women’s history one mother at a time. Honouring our maternal heritage by exploring, writing, sharing, preserving and performing stories that illustrate our mother’s lives, for both our personal fulfillment and for the benefit of our collective history. This is the vision and mission of Mothership Stories Society, the non-profit organization that directs and guides all aspects of My Mother’s Story. Founded in 2008 with the mandate to encourage the writing, collecting and performing of family stories, it is the publisher of the My Mother’s Story books, manages commissions and production of My Mother’s Story theatrical events, and holds the copyright to all stories and images.
The Idealogue shares and promotes news about scholarly projects and applied research happening in our Langara community. We aim to shine a spotlight on faculty, staff, and administers here at the College who are reaching out and applying their knowledge and learning to the world beyond the classroom – whether it be through community partnerships, educational leave, or experimental research.
We also aim to connect Langara scholars with information about the potential funding available to them, so if you’re working on a project please let us know by getting in touch at [email protected]
