In a previous post I talked about the un-workshop the NiCHE New Scholar’s group is organizing for October 1-2, 2010. The organizing committee is working hard to promote the hell out of this thing because we want to see the alternative workshop/conference format succeed and change the way historians meet to exchange ideas. We are using mostly internet based mediums to spread the word and in that vein, Sean Kheraj interviewed me for a short bit in his latest edition of his Nature’s Past Canadian Environmental History podcast.
Here is the link. The first part of is about Canadian forestry education and the second part is about Place and Placelessness.
I would love to promise this is the end of my shameless promotion of Place and Placelessness from me but as one of the co-organizers part of my job is to be the academic equivalent of a corporate whore and talk this thing up until the cows come home – or at least until the Call for Participants period ends on July 16.
