[Cover of new issue of (e)AFFECT]The latest edition of e(AFFECT) features research from a broad range of disciplines.

The second issue of Queen’s University’s research magazine (e)AFFECT is now available for reading, both online and in paper. Published twice a year by the Office of the Vice-Principal (Research), (e)AFFECT profiles exceptional research happening at the faculty, graduate and undergraduate levels on campus.

Sharing stories about researchers driven by curiosity and creativity, (e)AFFECT aims to bring Queen’s discoveries and research to a wider audience. The latest issue is focused on “creating, discovering and innovating,” one of the four themes of the Strategic Research Plan. It features research from a broad range of disciplines, including drama, physics, English, engineering, art and health sciences.

“I am pleased to present another sampling of our research vigor here at Queen’s,” says Steven Liss, Vice-Principal (Research). “There is a considerable passion for research and the defining role it plays at the university, and we are committed to communicating how the contributions of our researchers are making a difference.”

The latest issue will transport readers around the world: from SNOLAB, a science laboratory two kilometers underground in a mine near Sudbury, Ont., to the rural inlands of the South African province of KwaZulu-Natal. The issue also profiles research by Praveen Jain (Electrical Engineering), Julie Salverson (Drama and Cultural Studies) and Anne Croy (Biomedical and Molecular Sciences), among others.

(e)AFFECT is distributed to all faculty and departments. An accessible PDF is available on the website of the Office of the Vice-Principal (Research).For a hard copy, please email research@queensu.ca.
