As part of Movember, McGill linguists are growing mustaches to raise money for prostate cancer research. The McGill Linguistics Movember team consists of Alan Bale, David-Etienne Bouchard, Brian Buccola, Jamie Findlay, David Fleischer, Dan Goodhue, Michael Hamilton, Stephane Hurtubise, Moti Lieberman, Jenny Loughran (fund-raising), Tobin Skinner, and Lance Williams. So far the team has raised $600, ranking 12th of 24 teams at McGill––an especially good achievement considering the relatively small size of our department.
The team will be having an end-of-Movember event on Thursday evening after Rick Nouwen’s talk (5:30ish, location TBD). And stay tuned to next week’s McLing for a possible team photo!
