The Centre for Regional Studies’ board is pleased to announce that this October 21-22 the CRS will be hosting a kick-off conference for the recent grant we received from SSHRC.  This latest project is titled Critical Regionalism: Determinants of Community Sustainability (for a summary please see our website).  We will be fortunate to have Dr. Douglas Reichart Powell, author of Critical Regionalism: Connecting Politics and Culture in the American Landscape (2007), from Columbia College Chicago as a keynote speaker, as well as Dr. Doug House, Honourary Research Fellow, Memorial University of Newfoundland.  We want to make this conference an opportunity to showcase the strong research that is being done through CRS funding, so CRS grant recipients will be presenting their research.  If you are interested in attending this conference, please contact Lynda Harling Stalker (
