Given that Canadian folk singer Joni Mitchell had her career peak in the ’70s, why would Camosun College students care about I Think I’m Fallin’, a new musical playing at the Belfry? I Think I’m Fallin’ director Michael Shamata says the time is right to talk about Mitchell, with Bob Dylan recently winning the Nobel […]

A connected campus: How technology is changing the classrooms of Camosun

November 16, 2016 by Adam Marsh, student editor  
Filed under November 16, 2016, Features

We’re in the midst of a technological revolution that is changing the way we communicate, think, and, perhaps of most relevance to Camosun students, learn. People are glued to their electronic devices more than ever; in some ways it’s replacing face-to-face communication. Life in the classroom has changed, too, with more and more students ignoring […]

Starting out as a microbiologist in England, Appleton came to […]

Filed under November 16, 2016, Columns, Magazine Issue

Crumb (1994) 5/5 The world of Robert Crumb, the reclusive and reluctant counter-culture comic visionary of the 1960s and ’70s, is a fiercely fascinating microcosm of idiosyncrasies including sordid perversion, familial dysfunction, and the pressures of unwanted fame. Crumb (1994) is the microscope that documents it all, and in doing so it shows us the […]
