Erin Crandall will be receiving the recently established Faculty of Arts awards for teaching, service, and scholarship.

Andrew Biro and Alice Cohen were awarded a University Research Fund (Article 25.55) grant for their project, “Organizing Resources.” Biro and Cohen are collaborating to write a book (under contract with University of Toronto Press) that uses recent insights from critical geography and environmental political theory to explore environmental politics and the construction of nature in Canada. The funds will be used to hire a student assistant and to present preliminary results at the Western Political Science Association conference in April 2019.
