Beyond the Culture of Nature: Canadian Studies and Environmental Studies Conference

UBC was a great place to think about the future of two favourite areas of research and teaching, Sept. 29-30.  "On Wheeler Pond:  Reflections on Homeplace and Democracy in Canadian Studies and Environmental Studies" is the title of the paper I presented on heritage and praxis in Banff National Park.

Thanks to Matthew Evenden and all the folks who organized this event.  It was a treat to meet my colleagues in these areas, including past graduate students.  And good to reconnect and learn more about the new Network in Canadian Studies

I also learned what happens in the UBC Gage Residence on a Friday night and won a game of ping pong!
