Island Studies News | October 2021

A note from the editor:

Hello and welcome to the October edition of the Institute of Island Studies Newsletter! I hope you are looking forward to "spooky month" as much as I am!

Here on PEI, the air will soon be getting colder and the trees will be a riot of colours (for a brief time anyway)! We have more than one event taking place right here on PEI, including a prohibition-themed costume party, so check out our PEI Community Announcements section for details! You don't want to miss out!

The University of Highlands and Islands is launching a new webinar series this month, the second installment of which will be featuring our own Dr. Laurie Brinklow!

We also have a new feature in this month's newsletter that I hope to continue; the Visual Arts and Media section! I plan on using this section to showcase more island creatives who work outside of our usual mediums. You'll find these features at the end of the newsletter so you can finish off strong! This month we are sharing an uplifting video featuring the Shalloway Youth Choir, Alan Doyle & Séan McCann (arranged by Leslee Heys).

I hope these additions will help you to get the most out of your Autumn,
Until next time, take care!

2021 SSHRC Exchange Publication Awards

Two $5,000 awards are given out annually by UPEI to support the publication of manuscripts written or edited by faculty and staff in the social sciences and humanities. Both books will be published by Island Studies Press. Meet this year's recipients:

Josh MacFadyen is the Canada Research Chair in Geospatial Humanities, and an Associate Professor in the Applied Communication, Leadership and Culture program at UPEI. His manuscript, Time Flies: Landscapes and Change on Prince Edward Island, 1935-2020, will present high resolution aerial images of over fifty iconic landscapes on Prince Edward Island, and it will trace how those communities and natural ecosystems have changed over 85 years.   

Linyuan Guo-Brennan is an Associate Professor in the Faculty of Education. Her textbook, Education for Global Citizenship and Sustainability: A Practical Guide for Educators, is filled with activities and resources that will help teachers form global educator identity, connect global concepts with curriculum and age-appropriate pedagogy, and feel inspired to take professional actions in various settings and contexts. 
Island Studies Press would like to thank Dr. Katherine Gottschall-Pass, Interim Vice-President Academic and Research for her support.

As always, we'd like to remind you that all of the Island Studies Press books that you read about in our newsletter are available for sale in bookstores and online!

In Honour of Margaret Ness Doyle

We were saddened to learn that one of the esteemed members of our MAIS alumni, Margaret Ness Doyle, passed away on September 17, 2021.
 
Margaret joined the MAIS program in 2005, graduating in 2010. Her thesis, entitled "An Island Solution to an Island Problem: A Study of Women’s Rights on Prince Edward Island and Ireland 1841-1988," was supervised by Dr. Ed MacDonald (History), with James Moran (History) and Jean Mitchell (Soc/Anth) serving on her committee.
Margaret contributed immeasurably to campus life through her dedication to the MAIS program, MAPUS (Mature and Part-time University Students), and the University Senate. 
Campus flags are lowered to half-mast in her memory. 
To read her obituary and make online condolences, please go to the Hennessey Cutcliffe Funeral Home. 
We in the MAIS program send their deepest condolences to Ms. Doyle’s family, friends, and colleagues, and asked Ed MacDonald to pen a few words below. Thank you, Ed.
 

Tribute to Margaret Ness Doyle 

by Dr. Ed MacDonald (Department of History)

Margaret Doyle couldn’t stand to let her brain stand idle. And so, when her working life as an operating room nurse wound down, her academic life geared up. She did a degree in History, then another in Political Science, before entering the MAIS program as one of its most mature students. “I like to keep busy,” she always said by way of explanation. Perhaps that’s why she also threw herself into MAPUS, the prime advocate on campus for the rights and needs of mature and part-time students.

Margaret and I worked together on her MAIS thesis project, which married four of her passions: Prince Edward Island, Ireland, health care, and women’s rights. Her thesis ambitiously compared and contextualized women’s reproductive rights in Ireland and Prince Edward Island over the course of the twentieth century. It was a big project, too big perhaps, but with wry intelligence, stubborn industry, and perpetual good will she worked her way through the several necessary historiographies and, drawing upon her own nursing experience, tracked her theme across the decades. Even when she successfully defended in 2010, she wasn’t done; her thoughts immediately turned to “What will I do next?”

I have such good memories of Margaret. She was a self-starter who never needed prompting, and if there were delays in her thesis progress, they came because we had so many distracting, delightful conversations about Ireland and nursing and her own eventful life. She was invariably modest about her own scholarship and seemed quite unaware of what a fascinating, admirable person she was. Like all good nurses, she recognized and respected lines of authority – but leavened with a healthy dose of skepticism. For her, people always mattered more than regulations. I never did discover her personal views on many reproductive issues, but I took delight in our time together and deeply admired her determination to put her mind to work in defiance of time. We always talk about “lifelong learning.” Margaret lived it. That, I’m sure, will be part of her legacy.

18th World Lake Conference

The surface water bodies have been impacted by numerous changes: environmental, political, economic, financial, administrative, technological, cultural, and social, such is the case of the lakes. The problems of appropriate management have been solved through local solutions.

The 2020 edition of the 18th World Lake Conference (WLC18) will be held in the city of Guanajuato, Mexico. This conference will keep up with the efforts of benefiting governance, resilience, and sustainability of lakes through knowledge generation, information exchange, experiences, and best practices, proposing a meeting space for experts, authorities in charge of administration, users, technologists, scientists, professionals, students, and civil society members interested in spreading, learning and fomenting pertinent actions for comprehensive management of lakes.

Pacific History Association Biennial Conference 2021:
‘In Their Own Words’
November 17–20, 2021 | Combined face-to-face/virtual conference

Strategically, the Pacific is at the centre of global debates on climate change and sustainable development, and there has been a resurgence in historical Indigenous knowledge as a solution to contemporary challenges in our societies. How can history become more visible and more audible as a strong voice in public discourse on the environment, traditional knowledge, faith, migration, health, and education? The 2021 PHA is an opportunity for scholars, for historians in particular, both from the Pacific Islands and beyond, to reimagine, resource and reshape our region’s past, present and future.

Once upon an island - Green tourism

Episode 1: The archipel of Lastovo (Croatia): How to develop tourism within preserving the existing exceptional ecosystem of the island?

Welcome to "Once upon an island - Green tourism", the podcast that highlights ecotourism on small islands. They fascinate us with their promise of peace and freedom, but did you know that small islands are pioneer territories for a more sustainable development? 
Each week, the podcast gives a voice to islanders, in particular women, to develop a tourism that respects the environment. They live off the British, Greek, Tunisian coasts, or off the French, Croatian and Norwegian coasts. They share their innovations and experiments with us, concrete and inspiring solutions that can be transposed to other islands and continents.

Season 2 out now!
Episode1: there and back again - part 1

We start off season two at the beginning: the creation of Epekwitk told by Mi'kmaq legends. Skipping centuries here and there, we learn about the many people this island became home to and follow their patterns of migration. Whether expelled by the English in the mid-1700s, looking for work, or yearning for somewhere new, not all islanders stay on PEI. We explore what that looked like, and more importantly, what it meant for islanders to have to leave home throughout the centuries.

Features guest interviews: Riley Bernard, Georges Arsenault, Dr. Ed MacDonald, and Dr. Laurie Brinklow.

 

"Do You Know What’s in Your Harbour?"
Episode 4 of Coastal Connections: Stories from the Atlantic!
A podcast series from Coastal Routes Radio

Whether its seeing a cleaner harbour bottom or having a safer swim, Shawn and Staunene remind us that the oceans are our responsibility and they share the importance of cleaning up our oceans one harbour at a time! Removing litter from one beach or one harbour may seem insignificant in the grand scheme of things but the fact is, the more clean ups we do, the more awareness we can bring towards this issue and the more we can remediate and prevent more trash from piling up! Clean ups show us what the most common sources of pollution which can inform policies to target specific items and catalyze innovative alternatives and solutions that support local communities and regional economies.

"A Snapshot of the Jewish Community in Charlottetown 100 Years Ago" 
By Joseph B Glass
In Shalom Magazine, Fall 2021, Vol. 46, No. 2, pp. 30-31.

In this snapshot of the tiny community in 1921, the Jewish denizens are contextualized within Prince Edward Island’s political, demographic, economic, and social backdrops. For its small size, the Jewish population figured prominently in the local news, not as a community, but as individuals in various circumstances—business, education, charity, sports, and legal matters.
 

Review of World Economics, Advance online publication:
"Is international tourism responsible for the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic? A cross-country analysis with a special focus on small islands."

Abstract: This article aims at analysing the role of international tourism attractiveness as a potential factor for the outbreak and the early spread of the recent COVID-19 disease across the world (also called the first wave) with a special focus on small Island economies. Econometric testing is implemented over a cross-country sample including 205 countries/territories (with 59 small islands) after controlling for several usual suspects. The results state a positive and significant relationship between COVID-19 prevalence and inbound tourism arrivals per capita. Thus in the early stages of the spread (before travel restrictions), international tourism could be seen as one of the main responsible factors for the recent pandemic, validating the “tourism-led vulnerability hypothesis”. Accordingly, considering that such health shocks should be more frequent in the near future, this finding suggests that the tourism specialization model in the context of small islands is too vulnerable to be considered as sustainable in the medium and long-run. Policymakers must opt for economic diversification when possible. Otherwise, building up a strong public-health system alongside a specialized tourism sector is required.
