Dr. Yvan Rose, Linguistics Department, has received a $25,000

The Canada Council for the Arts announced that the Agnes Etherington Art Centre,
in Kingston, Ont., is the recipient of the 2005 York Wilson Endowment Award,
for the purchase of antipersonnel, by Newfoundland contemporary artist
and Grenfell College professor Barb Hunt. antipersonnel
is a 50-part sculptural installation of full-scale replicas of land mines, hand-knit
in various hues of pink wool. This ongoing project begun in 1998 and will ultimately
yield representation of some 250 types of land mines. antipersonnel
is meant as a continuing act of protest: by rendering land mines as knitted
objects, Ms. Hunt makes them harmless, and in doing so pays homage to efforts
to rid the globe of these pernicious weapons.
