Energy History of PEI

W.A. Murphy Student Centre - UPEI


Friday, February 15, 2019, 04:00pm

The Environmental Studies Book Club Discussion Series will be discussing Time and a Place: An Environmental History of Prince Edward Island (2016). Discussions will probe into past and present environmental changes on PEI, and how and why Islanders are particularly sensitive to environmental issues and enmeshed in their landscape in a way that is unique among Canadians.

During the second discussion, focus will be on the chapter “Two centuries of energy on Prince Edward Island” by Kathleen Stuart. Those interested to have a more detailed look at the energy history of PEI during 1973-1990 can also read the book by Alan MacEachern, The Institute of Man and Resources: An Environmental Fable (2003).

The authors and editors of these books, Ms. Kathleen Stuart, Dr. Alan MacEachern, and Dr. Josh MacFadyen, will join the discussion. 

Time and a Place: An Environmental History of Prince Edward Island and The Institute of Man and Resources: An Environmental Fable are available at the UPEI Library.
