Backhouse receives honorary doctorate from Western
Constance Backhouse was recently celebrated again when she was granted an honorary doctorate from the University of Western Ontario. This is her second honorary doctorate; she was granted an LLD two years ago from the University of Manitoba. On June 15th she addressed graduates of the Faculties of Education and Postgraduate Studies, not telling them they weren't special, but rather that they are special because they will change the world for the better--a condition subsequent for special-ness as it were. Well said, and congratulations once again, Constance!
