A generous and supportive research environment
The staff and faculty awards are organized by the office of Associate Dean of Faculty Affairs and Inclusion Jill Didur, via a committee which she chairs. Selections are then sent to the dean for final approval.
“I think I speak for the entire committee when I say it was a joy to read so many outstanding letters of recommendation from colleagues and students,” Didur says.
Alexandra Zeitz, an assistant professor in the Department of Political Science, received the Junior Scholar Award, along with colleague Marek Majewski from the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry. She was honoured for her numerous contributions to the faculty, including a standout record in terms of publications and funding. Zeits’ research focuses on the politics of international finance and the position of developing countries in the global financial system.
“I was very honoured to receive the award,” says Zeitz. “I really appreciate the generous and supportive research environment at Concordia and within the department of political science, which has allowed me to move forward my research on the politics of finance and international development even during the difficult context of the pandemic”
