DOUBLE MAJOR// January Edition: Chow Mein Buns + Brewing History
Tuesday, 14 January 2014, 7:00 p.m.
Join Carleton University Art Gallery (CUAG) for the fifth installment of our 2013/2014 DOUBLE MAJOR lecture series, where we’ll hear from two passionate experts, each speaking for 20 minutes about their subject, after which there will be a Q&A addressing both topics. One speaker is from the Ottawa-Gatineau community, and one is from the Carleton community. DOUBLE MAJOR is a fun and friendly way to stimulate discussion of seemingly disparate topics, and to make new connections between people and ideas. Props encouraged!
Chow Mein Buns (Denise Chong) and Brewing History (Matthew Bellamy)
DOUBLE MAJOR is held at CUAG. Lectures start at 7pm.
DOUBLE MAJOR is brought to you by Carleton University Art Gallery and the Carleton University Alumni Association.
Author Denise Chong is best known for her nonfiction depictions of the lives of Chinese immigrants in Canada. Her latest book, Lives of the Family: Stories of Fate and Circumstance, continues this tradition as the two-time Governor General’s Literary Award finalist presents stories from three different families. The book follows them from their origins in China to the very different communities they find in Canada. Chong, herself a third-generation Chinese-Canadian, gives voice to those who are rarely heard.
Dr. Matthew J. Bellamy is an associate professor of history at Carleton University where he has been the recipient of a number of teaching and book awards. He specializes in Canadian business, political, and economic history. In 2005 Maclean’s magazine named him as one of Carleton’s most popular professors. In 2007, he was the recipient of the Capital Educators’ Award. His work on brewing has been recently published in Canada’s History Magazine, Legion Magazine, and the international journal of Brewery History. He is also a regular contributor to Taps: The Beer Magazine
