Main Building, 412

My teaching duties largely encompass Canadian history, Atlantic Canada and Prince Edward Island history in particular, but I also teach the history of rock and roll, and I draw upon my museum background to offer a course in applied public history.

I am an historian of place, that is, Prince Edward Island, although I try always to see its history within a larger context. Over the course of my career, I have written and lectured extensively about diverse aspects of the Island's social, cultural, political, and religious history. In recent years, three principal areas have attracted my interest: the history of tourism, environmental history, and public history, especially the commemoration of Canadian Confederation. My most recent book, co-edited with Irené Novaczek and Joshua MacFadyen, is Time and a Place: An Environmental History of Prince Edward Island.
