PhD in Humanities student David Mendelsohn was been awarded a Trudeau Foundation Scholarship. He is studying the socio-cultural factors that impede dialogue between Israelis and Palestinians, and told The Gazette recently that he intends to open a wrestling school in the Palestinian Territories to do his part for peace. His supervisors at Concordia are Annette Teffeteller, Mark Hale and Lionel Sanders from the Department of Classics, Modern Languages and Linguistics. Mendelsohn has also been accepted into a doctoral program at McGill.
