Travel Team Training Reminder

Travel training for the Concur Travel online booking process is scheduled today (October 15) at 10:00 AM in Regis North. This is for employees that typically book their own travel. Please note there will be one more session scheduled for travel arrangers (those that book for others.) The date and time have not yet been set.

The Travel Teams’s technology is backed by travel experts available 24/7 for any and all emergency situations. Also, there are agents available to arrange complicated travel plans.

The college’s new Travel Policy can be found on the Canisius Policies page on myCanisius under General Policies.

Jane Fisher Authors New Book

Associate Professor of English Jane E. Fisher, PhD, focuses on World War I and the forgotten 1918 influenza pandemic in her new book Envisioning Disease, Gender and War: Women’s Narratives of the 1918 Influenza Pandemic.

Fisher contends that modern forms of war and peace, health and illness, and masculinity and femininity, were all being negotiated in the volatile period between 1914 and 1920. Specifically, her book draws upon the narratives, novels and essays of such well-known writers as Willa Cather, Katherine Anne Porter and Virginia Woolf to examine how women developed an appreciation of their own endurance, envisioning and accepting their transformed futures following the apocalyptic losses of men during World War I (1914-1918) and the 1918 influenza pandemic.

Envisioning Disease, Gender and War is Fisher’s first book and the culmination of nine years of research and writing.
