A pair of Brandon University professors are collaborating to launch a study exploring the impact of the global health pandemic on people who are in committed, romantic relationships but who are living apart.
“This type of relationship, where people are in a committed relationship but don’t live in the same household, is a relatively recent development, and there is not yet much research on it,” said Dr. Serena Petrella, chair of the BU Department of Sociology and a BU Associate Professor who studies families and intimacy.

Brandon University offer almost entirely online and remote instruction in the Fall 2020 term and has updated the Registration Guide with full details for each course.
“We are investing in technology and other supports to continue delivering exceptional learning experiences for students, and our faculty have been working tremendously hard to prepare engaging, innovative courses for this unusual fall,” said BU President David Docherty.

A joint research project by Brandon University (BU) and the Manitoba Archaeological Society (MAS) will tell us more about the way Indigenous people lived in southwestern Manitoba before the arrival of Europeans.
Brandon University Department of Anthropology Professor Dr. Mary Malainey and the MAS have received Manitoba Heritage Grant funding to support an archaeological program at the Olson site, south of Melita.
