name of museum

A wee bit of correction...the former Museum of Man in Ottawa
was renamed several years ago (five? six?), the Canadian Museum
of Civilization / Musee Canadien des Civilisations.

Not Western civilization, please not that. We'd be back to the
drawing board again. Inclusive speech (as a matter of accuracy
in scholarship) is mandated in the guidelines set out for SSHRC
grants (Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada,
our central funding agency for doctoral and post-doctoral research).
And all this is in French and English. Gets to be a bit awkward,
but mostly it seems pretty normal. As the joke goes, "Don't mind
us, we're Canadians."
