Environmental History and PEI, June 2010‏

12 02 2010

From 7-25 June, the University of PEI is offering “Settling and Unsettling Spaces: Environmental History & PEI,” an intensive, three-week course in the field. Upper-level undergraduates and Master’s students will draw from a range of disciplines in lectures, seminars, and primary research. They will also investigate the Island behind the tourism brochures, through field trips that explore how PEI’s environment and communities have changed over time. If you have questions, contact Josh MacFadyen, jmacfady@uoguelph.ca

As part of that course, students will also participate in the second event, the 13-18 June “Time and a Place: Environmental Histories, Environmental Futures, and Prince Edward Island”. Local, national, and international participants will come together to develop PEI’s environmental history and explore, more broadly, the value of islands in crafting plans for sustainability. The event, organized by UPEI and NiCHE, will include workshops, field trips, public lectures (by Finis Dunaway, Daniel Pauly, Harriet Ritvo, Donald Worster, and Graeme Wynn), and, undoubtedly, lobster.

Thanks to a SSHRC Environmental Issues grant, the registration costs are very reasonable, and registration and travel support will be available to some students. If you are interested in attending, please apply online by 15 February. Space is limited! You will be notified by 15 March if your application has been accepted, and you will be asked to pay registration by 1 May. If you have any questions, please contact: amaceach@uwo.ca
