If incels’ violent misogyny had a role in Toronto, we mustn’t downplay it
A regular columnist in The Guardian, Emer O'toole, Assistant Professor of Performance Studies, has written a new piece focusing on the impact of violent misogyny in 'incel' communities and how this ideology played a role in the recent Toronto attack. In her piece, Professor O'toole asks readers to recognize the biases found in past reports on crimes against women in order to avoid making the same mistake following this attack.
Quotes from the column also saw further publication in a piece on Global News' online platform.
Krzysztof Skonieczny, Assistant Professor, Electrical and Computer Engineering and Canada Research Chair in Aerospace Robotics, studies how to build better vehicles for exploring new planets, specifically by better understanding the terrain they will encounter.
In his lab, Skonieczny has been developing a new design for the wheels of the ExoMars rover that will be sent to Mars in 2020 by the European Space Agency. He recently took his latest prototype aboard an aircraft which flies in parabolic arcs to simulate different gravity conditions, allowing him to replicate conditions on Mars. This thrilling experiment inspired millions of people through its coverage on Global News, the National Post, CTV, CBC, and many more.
