You may already be familiar with this daily national online publication. Conversation Canada delivers analysis and explanatory journalism from the academic and research community directly to the public. It’s a not-for-profit collaboration where professional editors work directly with academics and researchers to publish articles for a wide audience. It is an effective venue for showcasing your research and expertise, as articles often attract national and sometimes international media interest.
U of G became a founding partner of the media network in 2017. Since then, most universities across Canada have become members.
