Place Peripheral Book to be Launched this Fall

Vodden, Gibson, and Baldacchino’s Place Peripheral examines community and regional development in rural, island, and remote locales from a place-based approach. This is a timely edited collection, addressing themes that are receiving considerable attention in Canada and internationally as local communities, scholars, researchers and public policy analysts strive to better understand and apply place-based strategies in rural and remote regions. The volume and its contributors examine place-based economic development strategies, recognizing the broader and deeper significance, meanings, and attachments often associated with place and also interrogating such relationships as may exist between sense of place, cultural and social development, and environmental stewardship. It is being launched at the Canadian Rural Revitalization Foundation’s Building Resilience Communities Conference on September 16, 2015, at 7:30pm at the Harbourfront Theatre, 124 Heather Moyse Drive, in Summerside PEI.
