Rural, Wildland, and Resource Studies Series

Most Recently Published

Time and a Place

By: Edward MacDonald (Editor), Joshua MacFadyen (Editor)

From £28.99

Inspired by Canadian Papers in Rural History, Donald H. Akenson's classic occasional papers series, this series will publish both monographs and thematically unified edited collections dealing with aspects of rural and wildland life and resource extraction, past and present. The Rural, Wildland, and Resource Studies Series is about communities and places lying beyond the city limits, outside the centres of urban political and cultural power, and at the site of resource procurement and environmental change. Scholarly and popular interest in the environment, climate change, food, and a seemingly deepening divide between city and country, is now drawing these places back into the view of the urban mainstream. The editors welcome for consideration any work dealing with non-urban life, such as agriculture, mining, cottaging, the gathering of wild foods, fishing, and power generation, amongst other subjects. The series will focus on, but not be limited to, Canadian places and topics.
