Pegasus symbolizes the creative imagination, and inspiration, as Greco-Roman poetry proposes – and as Steven Olderr notes in Symbolism: A Comprehensive Dictionary. As a program, SASAH is invested in creativity, inspired by the reality that the arts and humanities can and do change minds, hearts, and societies.
The SASAH 2021 yearbook, Pegasus, is indebted to SASAH’s students, faculty, staff, and supporters, who champion its programs and trust in the importance of its work. We thank Western University; the Faculty of Arts & Humanities and Dean Michael Milde; and our increasing community of donors, supporters, and friends, who recognize and share SASAH’s commitment to the importance of a transformative education in our changing world.
Pegasus as a vehicle to present the wonders of SASAH was first showcased in Spring 2020, thanks to the exciting work of Prof. Ruth Skinner. This year, SASAH Fourth Year student, Rebecca Jackson, boldly took the reins, and working alongside talented Third Year student, Maahi Patel, the two produced a second and equally wonderful iteration. Taking flight in a more expansive ways this time, Pegasus has ‘lift.’ Now we can see over and beyond the horizon.
