Ryerson University confers honorary doctorates on Mistry, Atwood, Gibson

Toronto’s Ryerson University is confering honorary doctorates on three CanLit heavyweights at the school’s spring convocation ceremony.

This morning, Rohinton Mistry received an honorary Doctor of Letters degree from the Faculty of Communication and Design, and treated soon-to-be Ryerson grads to a speech that bordered on a “brilliant, political fairy tale,” according to one tweeter in the audience. Mistry has previously received honorary doctorates from the University of Toronto, York University, and the University of Ottawa.

Margaret Atwood and partner Graeme Gibson will be presented with their Doctor of Letters degrees from the Faculty of Arts at convocation events on Tuesday afternoon. Atwood is no stranger to honorary doctorates, having received recognition from U of T, Trent University, and the National University of Ireland Galway, among others.

    Dr. Mistry’s parable was a gift to all of us, students and parents alike. Will we be able to acquire a copy of it?
