This week at Douglas College: Find out how to manage anxiety with help from counselors



Here's what's happening at Douglas College Nov. 16-22


Monday, Nov. 16


Downton Abbey Meets Jerich Tennis Club: The Legacies of Social Exclusion in Tennis
Coquitlam Campus
Room B3011
11am
Douglas instructor Dr. Rob Lake will speak about the history of tennis, viewed through the lens of hit TV period drama Downton Abbey.
Using Downton Abbey as a window to view the issues of tennis's 150-year history of elitism, sexism, racism and xenophobia, we can come to appreciate how the sport was, is, and will certainly continue to be, a microcosm of wider British and North American societies. RSVP to Elaine Innes
