In Conversation with Nancy Duxbury and Dr. Pam Hall
Two of today’s most respected researchers of place will meet in St. John’s to share their thoughts, theories, and visions for the world of placemaking and place-keeping.
Nancy Duxbury, one of the founding members of the Creative City Network of Canada, returns to share her work with the University of Coimbra’s Centre For Social Studies in Portugal. Current research through the IN SITU and the recent CREATOUR projects will be overviewed and begin the conversation around remote tourism and place.
Dr. Pam Hall, St. John’s local and the author of Towards an Encyclopedia of Local Knowledge, a publication of renowned importance for those wishing to “revalue the local in a time when global monoculture seems overwhelming”, brings a deep knowledge and appreciation for the traditions of rural Newfoundland – and of the process of documenting the stories of the land.
