UWindsor history project earns Ontario Heritage Award

There were no easy games for the Chatham Coloured All-Stars.

It's what Wilfred "Boomer" Harding recalled decades after his team was forced to overcome adversity both on and off the baseball diamond to become champions of the Ontario Baseball Amateur Association's Intermediate B-1 class in 1934.

That road to the championship game was onerous.

The Black baseball team travelled across the province to compete in games, often being denied accommodations and forced to continue driving in precarious conditions before eventually reaching a welcome refuge.

Value of same-sex coaches extends beyond the court, says UWin student

Taylor Imeson wants to see more women in head coaching positions.

Not only would it provide female athletes with same-sex mentors, but she says it would inspire future generations of female coaches to pursue the career.

"I had always noticed that women's sports were growing, but there were barely any female coaches," says Imeson.

"Participants felt they had the necessary skills and self-efficacy to coach, however, due to various reasons, a majority did not identify coaching as a career aspiration."

Professor blurs the lines between art and science

Jennifer Willet's art may evoke mixed feelings. And that's the point.

The associate professor at the University of Windsor specializes in bioart, a form of art that fuses scientific processes and materials in a gallery setting.

"It most often involves living, sometimes recently deceased biological material," Dr. Willet explained. "One of the things that really differentiates bioart from other art forms is the bioethics of the media are intrinsically present in the work of the artist and the viewer."
