Every year, King's honours student award recipients and the donors who have supported student awards at an Awards Ceremony. The ceremony acknowledges the accomplishments of some of our finest students and provides an opportunity for donors, award recipients, and their families to meet and celebrate together. Due to COVID-19, this year's celebration was held virtually. Although we could not celebrate in person, we are proud of the accomplishments of King's students and grateful for the generosity of donors who support student awards at King's.

Congratulations 2020-21 Student Award Recipients



As part of the celebration, the Christopher Perrin Beatty Lecture in Recognition of King's Outstanding Teaching Faculty was presented by Dr. Graham Broad, Associate Professor of History, and Dr. Vidya Natarajan, Writing Program Coordinator.

Presented by Dr. Graham Broad

Dr. Broad discussed how the study of war, and in particular the public commemoration of war, including battlefield study tours, can lead students to intergenerational and diverse encounters, making former sites of violent encounters into symbolic sites of reconciliation.

Presented by Dr. Vidya Natarajan, Writing Program Coordinator
2020 Part-Time Faculty Award Recipient

Dr. Natarajan discussed the recent intensification of interest in how writers' contexts, linguistic backgrounds, and lived experiences affect their rhetorical choices, and how academic writing norms, in turn, are socially determined.

The Christopher Perrin Beatty Lecture in Recognition of King's Outstanding Teaching Faculty was established by family and friends of the late Christopher Beatty (BA Hons '07). Hosted annually by the King's University College Foundation in conjunction with the Student Awards Ceremony, the lecture recognizes excellence in teaching at King's. This year's lecture was presented by both the full-time and part-time Outstanding Teaching Faculty Award Recipients.
