International issues come home 

Magnifying glass

History professor emeritus Geoffrey Adams addressed a group of alumni, students and faculty during Homecoming week. Speaking on “Contemporary France and the Muslim Community: The search for reasonable accommodation” Adams held the crowded room’s attention as he covered the political history of France, the economic reasons for the growth of its Muslim community and connections between that situation and current debates in Quebec headlines.

Rosemarie Schade, principal of Loyola International College which hosted the lecture, fondly recalled Adams’s career before he left Concordia in 1992. She pointed out his departure was not really a ‘retirement’, since he has published numerous academic volumes since then.

A panel discussion on Cultural Diversity Within the University will take place at the Université de Montréal’s Amphitheatre K-500, Roger Gaudry Pavillion.
