Works in Progress

This has been a busy summer, and there are no signs of it slowing down. In May and June I had the opportunity to teach a course on Canadian Environmental History at Trent University. Since then, I've been focussing on a number of writing projects. I'm currently working on a book chapter that examines the creation of the Canadian Coalition on Acid Rain, as well as the challenges it faced in maintaining its broad-based support. I am also working on chapters that explore the countercultural environmentalism of Toronto's Is Five Foundation, which was responsible for bringing recycling to the masses in Ontario, the role Vickers and Benson's advertising played in first wave environmental activism in Canada, and the importance of "place" in the development of the Toronto environmental community. 

In other news, I've been named an Associate Member of the Research Centre for Environmental History and Policy at the University of Sterling (Scotland). 

And with that update, it is time to return to writing ....
