Through a combination of circumstances, my almost five-year tenancy in UVic’s University House #4 has come to an end. My status there came through my affiliation with the POLIS Project on Ecological Governance and I am very grateful to POLIS – especially Dr. Kelly Bannister and Dr. Michael M’Gonigle – for their generosity in welcoming me to “live” at POLIS for the past few years. However, their superiors have a new vision for UH4 and it was time to find new accommodations.
Luckily, and thanks to the intervention of my supervisor Dr. Rod Dobell, I have been welcomed as a graduate student research associate with the University’s Centre for Global Studies through the generous support of the Centre’s Executive Director Dr. Gordon Smith. As with most things in my life, I am much luckier than I deserve and am very grateful to not only have excellent facilities in which to continue my research, but it is doubly-nice to be back inside Rig Road after 7 years in exile. All other contact remains the same, but my new mailing, courier and physical address can be found on my contact page.
