Campus offices: Take a look inside
by Leslie Vryenhoek

Office spaces are as unique as the people who inhabit them. Some are sparse and functional, while others are stuffed full of fascinating objects and memorabilia – things that are significant both personally and professionally.

Now a new initiative, the brainchild of Dr. Bradley Clissold in the Department of English, will offer a public peek into the private offices on campus. Called My [Office] Space, the web-based initiative will invite members of the campus community to answer a series of questions about the space they work in, and that they’ve personalized.

“The questionnaire is loosely based on the Proust questionnaire that appears in Vanity Fair,” he explained. “I thought it would be an interesting window into the eclectic individuals who work at Memorial.”

The completed question-and-answers will then be posted to a webpage, along with photographs of the subject’s office.

To learn more about the My [Office] Space project, or to nominate an office space you think is interesting, contact Bradley Clissold, English Department, or Leslie Vryenhoek, communications co-ordinator, Faculty of Arts. Or peek inside the website: www.mun.ca/myoffice.
