Paul Tai Yip Ng Memorial Award for 2020 Best Graduate Student Paper

Congratulations to Ms. Louisa Plant, who won our 2020 Best Graduate Student Paper award. Louisa's interest in immigration and integration was ignited by her experiences as a foreign student in Italy and Canada.

Louisa studied for her undergraduate degree in History of Art from the University of Bristol in the UK, which included a year studying at the British Institute of Florence in Italy. Louisa moved from London to Vancouver in August 2018 to pursue her master’s at SFU, and was thankful to have Dr John Harriss and Dr Irene Pang as her thesis supervisors. Louisa found studying as an international student to be a refreshing and rewarding experience, but also noticed profound challenges facing many foreign students, including difficulties that were not reflected in the academic literature.
