Concordia University Professor Linda Kay, chair of the Journalism Department from 2010 to 2013, began teaching after a long career in journalism that included a decade as the first female sports writer at The Chicago Tribune.
She has published three books and hundreds of articles for newspapers and magazines.
In 2007, she won the Dean's Award for Teaching Excellence in the University's Faculty of Arts and Science. Her scholarly research encompasses two diverse streams: the history of female journalists in Canada, and the study of methodologies that journalists employ when covering traumatic or tragic events. The Women's Y Foundation of Montreal recently named Professor Kay a Woman of Distinction.
