About Power & Perceptions  (129th edition)

An apeirogon is a polygon with a countably infinite number of sides. Much like the mathematical complexities underpinning its existence, this year’s edition of The Mitre seeks to consider the countably infinite sides of life in our present moment. In doing this we seek to honour the diversity of perspectives within our communities and how each of those perspectives constructs its own unique narrative.

Together we find ourselves tangled in an ever-complicated web of power dynamics and events outside of our immediate control. How does this lead to you understanding the world differently? How are we tied to one another? How are those ties created, maintained, or broken? How does it feel to engage with differences? What do power and perception mean to you?

When creating for this year’s edition of The Mitre, ask yourself the following:
●      How do we each understand the world differently?
●      How are we tied to one another? How are those ties broken or maintained?
●      How does power, in its multiple manifestations, play a role in our lives?
●      How can perception shape, deconstruct, or affect a narrative?
●      What do power and perception mean to you?

About the 2021-2022 Co-Editors

Cécilia Alain is a fourth-year student with an Honours in Film and minors in Creative Writing and Fine Arts. She comes from the tiny village of Saint-Damien-de-Buckland but she adopted the Eastern Townships a decade ago. She has always been fascinated by the power of words and images, and she is thrilled to watch the talent of creators unfold through this edition.

Linnie McGuire is a fifth-year student from New Hampshire with an Honours in Political Studies and minors in English and Economics. She is very excited to edit The Mitre this year, and cannot wait to see how this edition compiles a complexity of perspectives on the everchanging world we live in.
