The Institute of Island Studies, UPEI's Environmental Studies department, and NiCHe are joining together to host the 2010 Time and a Place: "Environmental Histories, Environmental Futures, & Prince Edward Island" Conference in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island. The conference will be held from June 13th to June 18th.
From the conference website:
"This weeklong workshop will bring together 60 local, national, and international participants to develop links between the Island’s past, present, and future. National and international speakers include Finis Dunaway, Matthew Hatvany, Alan MacEachern, Daniel Pauly, Harriet Ritvo, Donald Worster, and Graeme Wynn. Local speakers and resource persons include Darren Bardati, Ann Howatt, Mark Leggott, Edward MacDonald, Irene Novaczek, Sara Roach-Lewis, John Joe Sark, Gary Schneider, and Doug Sobey. The goals of the event are both local and global, pragmatic and theoretical:
- to develop understanding of PEI’s environmental history, and to bring together scholars working around that field,
- to assist future environmental planning on PEI, and
- to explore the value of islands for the study of environmental history and more broadly for crafting comprehensive plans for sustainability."
