12:00 PM - 1:00 PM Commuter Time Management Workshop
Commuting into Boston for school is not an easy task. Students lose a lot of time in their day traveling from their home and on to campus for their classes. The time Suffolk Students spend commuting can leave them struggling to find time to complete their homework, eat, and enjoy themselves socially. Attend this workshop to get control over the clock and get back to enjoying yourself as much as you possibly can!

2:30 PM - 3:45 PM Distinguished Visiting Scholar Lecture: Remembering Maurice ‘Rocket’ Richard: A French-Canadian Athlete Who Was Able to Unify All Canadians in Their Pride for Their National Winter Sport

Montreal in 1946 was home to two of the world’s greatest sports heroes:  Maurice Richard of the Montreal Canadiens, the French-Canadian hockey team known affectionately as “les Habs” (for “les Habitants,” the native inhabitants); and Jackie Robinson of the Montreal Royals, a minor league farm team of the Brooklyn Dodgers.  Yet there was a common bond between Richard and Robinson that was much more significant than their talents in their respective sports:  French-Canadian culture and society served as a support system to deal with and serve as a haven from racial discrimination.  Richard was a French-Canadian catholic in a city that was in direct conflict with the powerful English-Canadian protestant minority.  Robinson, who broke the “official” color barrier in Major League Baseball (MLB) but only after having suffered much torment and ridicule when playing games in the United States, regained his sense of dignity in Montreal and had his faith in humanity restored.  The presenter will thus explore the dynamics of the racial tensions taking place in Montreal as well as how the French-Canadian community made a difference for the careers of both Richard and Robinson.

Eileen M. Angelini is the recipient of a Canada-U.S. Fulbright award as a Fulbright Visiting Research Chair in Globalization and Cultural Studies at McMaster University (Hamilton, Ontario), and has been named Chevalier dans l’Ordres des Palmes Académiques. She received her B.A. in French from Middlebury College and her M.A. and Ph.D. in French Studies from Brown University. Angelini is currently Professor of French at Canisius College.
