1 Volume 11, numèro 3 mai/juin 2004 Rédactrice: Valerie Shoffey Volume 11, Number 3 May/June 2004 Editor: Valerie Shoffey CHRONIQUE DU PRÉSIDENT PRESIDENT S COLUMN Au revoir Voilà déjà deux ans que j occupe le poste de président de l ACG, et je signe aujourd hui ma dernière chronique ou devrais-je dire demi-chronique. À de nombreux égards, je suis soulagé. Non pas que la fonction de président ait été lourde et ennuyeuse. Au contraire, l expérience s est révélée fort enrichissante et agréable. J espère simplement avoir été à la hauteur des attentes des membres. Je suis plutôt soulagé parce que je n aurai plus d articles à rédiger. Ainsi que je l avais cru et exprimé dans ma première chronique, la rédaction d un article est un défi qui peut facilement devenir une épreuve. On n est jamais sûr de la manière de formuler les choses, et l on doute parfois de soi comme si quelqu un nous observait dans notre dos. J ai éprouvé de la difficulté à approfondir des sujets intéressants ou à trouver le ton juste lorsque je préparais ces brefs messages à votre intention. La plupart du temps, le fait de m asseoir devant un écran vide le dimanche après-midi et d arriver au dimanche suivant sans avoir terminé mon article a été pour moi une source de frustration. En outre, Valerie devait toujours attendre ma chronique jusqu à la dernière minute, avant de pouvoir l envoyer au service de traduction. Même ma dernière «demi-chronique» n est pas arrivée à temps. Néanmoins, la possibilité de m adresser à vous périodiquement m a offert un immense privilège, et j espère que quelques-uns de mes articles vous auront fourni l occasion de réfléchir ou d exercer votre sens critique. Je tiens à remercier tous les lecteurs qui m ont fait part de leur rétroaction et de leurs opinions sur certaines des questions soulevées dans ma rubrique. J aimerais rassurer ceux d entre vous qui ont pu croire que j étais à court d inspiration : j avais encore de nombreux sujets de discussion en réserve. Peut-être n étaient-ils pas des plus intéressants, mais c est là un point que nous ne pourrons jamais évaluer. Durant mon mandat de vice-président, j avais mis de côté des sujets que je croyais susceptibles de présenter un intérêt pour les membres. Quelques-uns d entre eux ont effectivement fait l objet d articles. D autres n ont jamais été abordés, par exemple : Est-ce que cela relève de la géographie? (L une des questions les plus notoires posées aux géographes physiques qui étudient des procédés.) Excursions liées à l enseignement de la géographie. Consultation du CRSH. (Que dire de plus?) suite la page... Goodbye It has already been two years since I began my tenure as President of the CAG and this will be my last column or should I say half-column. In many ways, this is a relief. Not that being President had been only work and worries. Too the contrary, the experience has been truly rewarding and enjoyable. I simply hope that I have stood up to the expectations of the membership. No, it is a relief because I will not have to write one more column. As I thought and expressed in my very first column, writing these is a challenge that can easily turn into an ordeal. You are never quite sure of how to say things, sometimes second guessing yourself like if someone was looking over your shoulder. I have found it hard to develop interesting topics or to get the right tone in preparing these short communications to you. Most of the time beginning with an empty screen on the Sunday afternoon and not being able to get it done by the next Sunday has been frustrating. And Valerie who always had to wait to the very last minute for my column to arrive before sending it to translation. Even this last halfcolumn is not on time. Yet, it has also been an immense privilege to be able to talk to you every two months and I do hope you have found some food for thought or for practicing your critical sense in a few of the columns. I would like to thank everyone who has provided feedback and opinions on some of the issues raised in the Column. For those of you who may have thought that I was running out of ideas, let me reassure them that I still had in my bank many more topics to discuss. Perhaps they were not that interesting but this is a matter that we will never be able to assess. In my term as vice-president I had set aside ideas that I thought could be of interest for the members. A few of them continued on next page...

2 CHRONIQUE DU PRÉSIDENT continuée... Étirons-nous trop les ressources? La géographie sous l oeil du public. Je pourrais énumérer bien d autres sujets encore, tous plus intéressants les uns que les autres. À la réflexion, il est peut-être préférable que la lecture de ces articles vous soit épargnée. Comme j ai terminé mon mandat en qualité de président, je profite de l occasion pour souligner l aide et l appui considérables que j ai reçus de l ensemble des membres, ainsi que des dirigeants et de l équipe de rédaction de notre revue. J ai sincèrement apprécié la possibilité de collaborer avec les membres de la direction, qui forment un groupe très dynamique et efficace. Je tiens particulièrement à remercier M me Valerie Shoffey de sa patience, de ses conseils et de sa compétence. Sans elle, notre association serait beaucoup moins productive. J aimerais également souhaiter tout le succès possible à notre nouveau président, M. Chris Sharpe, dans l exercice de ses nouvelles responsabilités. Sous sa gouverne éclairée et chevronnée, notre Association poursuivra son essor et continuera d accroître sa présence et sa notoriété. Recevez mes meilleurs voeux. André G. Roy Président sortant Bonjour... Lorsque M. Adam Tickle a accepté le poste de rédacteur de Transactions of the Institute of British Geographers en 2003, il a tout d abord avoué, dans son premier éditorial, qu il abordait cette nouvelle fonction avec une certaine fébrilité. Venant tout juste d être nommé 50 e président de l ACG, je comprends parfaitement ce que M. Tickle éprouvait. Il ajoutait ensuite que «l une des règles primordiales de la succession a trait au fait de prendre la relève d une personne qui, concrètement, n a pas été à la hauteur de la tâche car, en comparaison, même la compétence impressionne». Je n ai manifestement pas observé cette règle. Ni mon prédécesseur immédiat, M. André Roy, ni les 48 autres présidents avant lui ne m ont fourni l occasion de me démarquer du seul fait de ma compétence. Tous ont accompli un travail exemplaire. La liste des anciens présidents est prestigieuse, réunissant de nombreuses sommités du milieu canadien de la géographie, les fondateurs et les piliers non seulement de notre Association, mais également de la discipline à l échelle du pays. La liste comporte même mon superviseur de thèse, dont je tairai le nom afin de protéger sa réputation. Cependant, je suis sûr que mon affectation au poste de président ne ternira pas la suite la page PRESIDENT S COLUMN continued... actually became columns. Others never had made it. For example, topics like: Is this geography? (One of the most famous question being asked to physical geographers working on processes.) Field trips in geographical education. SSHRC consultation. (What more is there to say!) Are we spread too thin? Geography in the public eye. And many other topics more interesting than the next. Now thinking about it, it is perhaps best that you will not have to read these columns. As I have completed my term as President, I shall take this opportunity to acknowledge all of the help and support I have received from all of you, the members, and from the executive and the editorial team of our journal. It has truly been a treat to work with the executive, a very dynamic and efficient bunch of individuals. I particularly owe much reconnaissance to Valerie Shoffey for her patience, guidance and competence. Without her, not much in our association would happen. I also wish the best to our incoming President, Chris Sharpe, in his new responsibilities. Under his wise and experienced guidance, our Association will continue to thrive and be more visible and present. Best wishes to all of you, André G. Roy Past President Hello... When Adam Tickle became Editor of the Transactions of the Institute of British Geographers in 2003 he began his first editorial with the admission that he was taking up his new position with some trepidation. Having just become the 50 th President of the CAG, I know just how he felt. He went on to say that one of the first rules of succession is to take over from someone who has palpably failed to do a job properly because, by comparison, even competence looks impressive. I have clearly broken this rule. Neither my immediate predecessor André Roy, nor any of the 48 others have provided me with the opportunity to appear impressive by mere competence. All have done an exemplary job. The list of past Presidents is an impressive one, incorporating many of the giants of Canadian geography, the founders and sustainers not only of this Association, but also of the discipline in the country. It even includes my graduate supervisor, who shall remain anonymous in order to protect his reputation! But I am confident that my tenure of the position will not tarnish their collective continued on page

3 CAG AWARD CITATIONS 2004 Le prix pour Distinction universitaire en géographie Professeur Edward Relph, Université de Toronto Bien que la carrière du professeur Relph soit remarquable sur le plan de son étendue et de sa diversité, elle se caractérise par la persistance d'un thème principal : l'importance de l'observation et de la description critiques de paysages souvent perturbés et en perpétuel changement. À cet égard, le travail de M. Relph comporte de nombreuses observations lucides; cependant, son engagement à enseigner, par ses ouvrages, aux étudiants et à ses collègues à regarder les lieux et les paysages pour leur propre enrichissement est peut-être plus admirable. La carrière de M. Relph débute avec la publication d'une monographie intitulée Place and Placelessness, dans le cadre de ses études de doctorat à l'université de Toronto. Place and Placelessness a largement contribué à l'émergence du domaine de la géographie humaniste au milieu de la révolution quantitative. Dans une critique, M. John Gold a déclaré qu'il s'agissait d'un ouvrage pénétrant et créatif, qui remettait en question les pratiques liées à la géographie humaine contemporaine et offrait de nouvelles perspectives. De fait, l'attention accordée par M. Relph aux relations entre les humains et les lieux, c'est-à-dire, la phénoménologie, a permis de mettre l'accent sur le sens. Le livre vaut davantage qu'une note historique. Lorsqu'on le relit, on est frappé par son caractère étrangement prémonitoire, compte tenu de l'intérêt scientifique actuel axé sur la mondialisation. Il a fait l'objet d'une série d'articles intitulée " Classics in human geography revisited ", publiée dans Progress in Human Geography. Place and Placelessness a été suivi de deux autres monographies : l'une intitulée Rational Landscapes and Humanistic Geography, en 1984, et l'autre, Modern Urban Landscapes, en Ces deux ouvrages mettent l'accent sur la signification des paysages et des lieux. Le second est remarquable du point de vue de l'étendue de son sujet, c'est-à-dire rien de moins que le développement et l'apparence des villes au cours du dernier siècle. En outre, le professeur Relph est reconnu, parmi les géographes et les planificateurs, comme l'auteur du Toronto Guide, initialement élaboré à l'occasion de la réunion annuelle de l'aag à Toronto, en 1990, et mis à jour lors de l'assemblée annuelle de l'acg, en Ce livre accessible et amusant à lire a servi de guide à de nombreux visiteurs (M. Relph les appelle les " touristes volontaires ") de passage à Toronto. M. Relph n'est en aucune façon un chercheur Award for Scholarly Distinction In Geography Professor Edward Relph, University of Toronto Although remarkable for its breadth and variety, Professor Relph's career is characterized by endurance of a primary theme: the importance of critical observation and description of often-confused and perpetually changing landscapes. His own work makes many such insightful observations: perhaps more admirable though, is his commitment to, through his work, teaching students and colleagues how to look at places and landscapes for themselves. Ted's career begins with Place and Placelessness, a monograph published out of his PhD studies at the University of Toronto. Place and Placelessness was a major force in ushering the field of humanistic geography amidst the quantitative revolution. In a review, John Gold called it a "lucid and inventive book that challenged the practice of contemporary human geography and offered new ways forward". Indeed, Ted's focus on the relationships between humans and places - on phenomenology - allowed for a focus on meaning. The book is more than an object of historical note. Rereading it, one is struck with its odd prescience in the current context of scholarly focus on globalization. It has been the subject of the series in Progress in Human Geography entitled "Classics in human geography revisited". Place and Placelessness was followed by two additional monographs: Rational Landscapes and Humanistic Geography in 1984 and Modern Urban Landscapes in Both of these focus on the meanings of landscape and place. The latter is notable for its breadth, the subject being no less than the development and appearance of cities over the last one hundred years. Dr. Relph is also known among geographers and planners for The Toronto Guide originally assembled for the AAG annual meeting in Toronto in 1990 and updated for the CAG annual meeting in This accessible and fun-to-read book has guided many visitors (Ted calls them 'deliberate tourists') to Toronto. Ted is by no means a lone scholar. His mode of enquiry involves teaching. This outlook is reflected by a long tradition of listening to and learning from students. It is to some extent artificial to comment on his scholarship independently from his teaching. Among other things, Ted's field trips to Yorkville in Toronto and to the far-flung suburbs of Greater Toronto are famous among graduate students. Ted's work extends well beyond our discipline. For example, he has been invited to give keynote addresses at conferences by the Harvard University -3-

4 solitaire. L'enseignement fait partie de sa méthode de recherche. Cette perspective se reflète dans son approche de longue date axée sur l'écoute et sur l'apprentissage auprès des étudiants. Analyser son travail de recherche indépendamment de son enseignement constitue, en quelque sorte, une démarche artificielle. Les excursions du professeur Relph dans le quartier de Yorkville et dans les banlieues éloignées de la région du Grand Toronto, entre autres, sont célèbres parmi les étudiants des cycles supérieurs. Les travaux de M. Relph s'étendent bien au-delà de notre discipline. Par exemple, il a été invité à prononcer des discours liminaires, dans le cadre de conférences, par la Graduate School of Design de la Harvard University, le Council for Educators in Landscape Architecture et People and Places in Environmental Research. M. Relph continue de publier des articles traitant de divers sujets, y compris les centre-ville de banlieues et la méthodologie. Ses intérêts actuels sont axés sur la justice, la dislocation et l'hétérotopie. Il prévoit maintenant rédiger un livre sur Toronto, dans lequel il offrira une interprétation de la ville à partir d'observations de Marshall McLuhan et d'harold Innis. Il continue de s'employer à explorer les éléments sous-jacents du paysage apparent, afin d'établir un lien entre ce qui est perçu et des processus parfois éloignés et ce, d'une manière qui précède l'aspect phénoménologique des paysages. À cette fin, nous devons utiliser des concepts liés à la vie quotidienne. Cette relation importante se démarque au fil du temps dans les travaux de M. Relph. C'est pour cette raison que l Association canadienne des géographes décerne le prix pour Distinction universitaire en géographie au professeur Relph. Le prix pour Services rendus à la profession de géographie Professeur Audrey Kobayashi, Université Queen's Mme Kobayashi est reconnue, dans notre milieu, comme une géographe exceptionnelle qui a contribué à tous les aspects de la profession. Elle a fait preuve d'un engagement extraordinaire à l'égard de celle-ci. Vingt ans après ses études de doctorat, elle a tout mis en oeuvre pour servir les intérêts de la géographie. L'étendue et le nombre de ses contributions attestent son engagement à l'égard de la profession de géographe, dans tous les contextes possibles. Elle a représenté les préoccupations et les intérêts des géographes auprès des membres d'autres disciplines, en exerçant diverses fonctions au sein de l'association canadienne des études asiatiques, de Graduate School of Design, the Council for Educators in Landscape Architecture and People and Places in Environmental Research. Dr. Relph continues to publish on various topics including suburban downtowns and methodology. His interests today center on justice, dislocation and heteropia. His next project is a book on Toronto where he would provide interpretations of the city from insights of Marshall McLuhan and Harold Innis. Ted remains dedicated to ferreting what lies beneath the visible landscape, to connect what his seen to sometimes distant processes and to doing so in a way that foregrounds the phenomenological experiences of landscapes. This requires that we use concepts that are connected to every day life. This important connection stands up over time in Dr. Relph's work. This is also why the Canadian Association of Geographers honours Professor Relph with the Scholarly Distinction in Geography Award. Award for Service to the Profession of Geography Professor Audrey Kobayashi, Queen's University Dr. Kobayashi is known from all of us as an outstanding geographer who has contributed to all aspects of the profession. Dr. Kobayashi's services to the profession are simply extraordinary. Twenty years after the completion of her PhD, she has undertaken every possible type of service. The breadth and number of her service contributions attest to her commitment to advance the profession of geography in every possible forum. She has represented the concerns and interests of geographers to other disciplines, serving in various capacities within the Canadian Asian Studies Association, the Canadian Ethnic Studies Association, the Humanities and Social Sciences Federation of Canada and the Canada-US Fulbright Program. Her participation in the Association of American Geographers and the International Geographical Union has enhanced the reputation of Canadian geography. The extent and intensity of her commitment to geography are even more evident in her participation into our own association. Beginning as Coordinator of the Canadian Women and Geography Specialty Group (CWAG) in 1984, she has served as an elected member of the Executive Council, Chairperson of the Joint Canadian Association of Geographers and Association of American Geographers Liaison Committee, a member of the Committee for CAG 2001, a member of the Equity Committee, Chair of the Awards and Nominating Committees, Vice-President, President and Past President. She has been instrumental in continuing efforts to promote equity within Canadian geography since her -4-

5 la Société canadienne d'études ethniques, de la Fédération canadienne des sciences humaines et sociales et du Programme Fulbright Canada-États-Unis. Sa participation à l'association of American Geographers et à l'union géographique internationale a rehaussé la réputation du milieu canadien de la géographie. L'étendue et l'intensité de l'engagement de Mme Kobayashi à l'égard de la géographie sont d'autant plus manifestes du point de vue de sa participation à notre association. Ayant tout d'abord assumé les fonctions de coordonnatrice du Canadian Women and Geography Specialty Group (CWAG), en 1984, elle a été membre élu du conseil exécutif, présidente du comité mixte de liaison de l'association canadienne des géographes et de l'association of American Geographers, membre du comité de CAG 2001, membre du comité de l'équité en matière d'emploi, présidente des comités des prix et des candidatures, vice-présidente, présidente et présidente sortante. Depuis sa participation initiale au CWAG, elle a contribué aux efforts continus visant à promouvoir l'équité dans le secteur de la géographie au Canada. À titre de présidente de l Association canadienne des géographes, elle a proposé, appuyé et édité un numéro spécial de la revue The Canadian Geographer, à l'occasion du 50e anniversaire de l'association. Ce numéro soulignait la contribution du Canada au domaine de la géographie et abordait d'un point de vue géographique des questions propres au Canada. Outre ces réalisations remarquables en soi, les travaux de recherche de Mme Kobayashi comptent parmi les meilleurs en matière de géographie au Canada et sont renommés à l'échelle internationale. Elle est actuellement titulaire de la très convoitée bourse Erskine de la University of Canterbury de Nouvelle-Zélande. Elle a été invitée à donner des conférences dans le monde entier. De plus, elle a publié des articles exceptionnels et a apporté de nombreuses contributions novatrices et originales au secteur, par exemple, son récent ouvrage consacré aux aspects géographiques liés aux races et à la racialisation. Elle aborde également cette question d'un point de vue politique. En outre, Mme Kobayashi est un professeur créatif et efficace. Elle a enseigné à de nombreux étudiants de premier cycle et des cycles supérieurs. Elle a reçu le prix W.J. Barnes pour l'enseignement, décerné par les étudiants de premier cycle de l'université Queen's, en reconnaissance de sa méthode d'enseignement novatrice, en ce qui a trait aux enjeux actuels liés à l'inégalité sociale. Mme Kobayashi est une géographe accomplie. Sa contribution extraordinaire à notre discipline englobe la gamme complète des activités menées par les professeurs. L Association canadienne des géographes est fière de rendre hommage à Mme Audrey Kobayashi. initial participation in CWAG. As President of the Canadian Association of Geographers, she has proposed, promoted and edited special issues of The Canadian Geographer for the 50th anniversary of the association. The issue highlighted the Canadian contributions to geography and presented geographical viewpoints on Canadian issues. If these achievements were not enough, Dr. Kobayashi's scholarship is among the very best in Canadian geography and is well known internationally. She is currently holding a highly competitive Erskine Fellowship to the University of Canterbury in New Zealand. She has been invited to give lectures around the world. She also has an outstanding publication record and has made many pioneering and original contributions as for example her more recent work on geographical aspects of race and racialization. This work is being linked into policy aspects as well. Dr. Kobayashi is also an innovative and successful teacher. She has trained numerous graduate and undergraduate students. She has been the recipient of the W.J. Barnes Award for Teaching given by the undergraduate students at Queen's University in recognition of her innovative teaching on contemporary issues in social inequality. Dr. Kobayashi is the complete geographer. Her outstanding contributions to our discipline span the full range of activities that professors do. The Canadian Association of Geographers is proud to honour Audrey Kobayashi today. Award for Excellence in Teaching Geography Professor Geoff McBoyle, University of Waterloo Geoff McBoyle has been a member of the Department of Geography of the University of Waterloo since His teaching abilities were recognised very early in his career. In 1989, he was one of the first recipients of the University of Waterloo Distinguished Teacher Award, and in 1994, the USA-based National Council for Geographic Education (NCGE) awarded him the University Distinguished Teaching Achievement Award for Geographic Education. For the past six years, Geoff has been Dean of the Faculty of Environmental Studies at Waterloo. Despite this heavy administrative duty, he has continued to teach the Introductory Physical Geography course in both the Fall and Winter terms. With approximately 200 students per class each time, Geoff has introduced physical geography to thousands of students. Geoff loves teaching and it shows as the students love being taught by Geoff. This is known from -5-

6 Le prix d'excellence pour l'enseignement en géographie Professeur Geoff McBoyle, Université de Waterloo M. Geoff McBoyle est membre du département de géographie de l'université de Waterloo depuis Son aptitude pour l'enseignement a été reconnue dès le début de sa carrière. En 1989, il a été l'un des premiers lauréats du prix du professeur distingué de l'université de Waterloo; de plus, en 1994, le National Council for Geographic Education (NCGE) des États-Unis lui a décerné le prix de distinction pour l'enseignement de la géographie au niveau universitaire. Au cours des six dernières années, M. McBoyle a exercé les fonctions de doyen de la faculté des études environnementales de l'université de Waterloo. Malgré cette lourde tâche administrative, il a continué d'enseigner le cours d'initiation à la géographie physique durant les semestres de l'automne et de l'hiver. Comme chaque classe compte environ 200 étudiants, le professeur McBoyle a fait découvrir la géographie physique à des milliers de personnes. M. McBoyle aime enseigner et c'est évident, car les étudiants aiment l'avoir comme professeur, ainsi qu'en témoignent leurs évaluations. Son travail est jugé excellent de façon constante; en outre, plus de 60 pour 100 des étudiants lui accordent la note la plus élevée. Ces notes sont appuyées par les nombreuses remarques formulées par les étudiants au verso de leur formulaire d'évaluation. Un échantillon restreint de ces remarques offre un aperçu des qualités qui font de M. McBoyle un professeur exceptionnel. Par exemple, il enseigne en début de matinée le lundi, ce qui mène souvent à la catastrophe, mais non pas en ce qui le concerne : «Le professeur Boyle, l'un des rares qui puissent me tirer du lit à 8 h.» «Chaque matin, l'enthousiasme de M. McBoyle tenait la classe éveillée.» «Le seul cours qui ait réussi à m'empêcher de dormir à 8 h 30.» Outre ses habiletés pédagogiques remarquables, l'enthousiasme de M. McBoyle, de même que son amour de la matière constituent manifestement l'un des facteurs clés de son succès. " Le professeur est enthousiaste et compréhensif, direct et organisé.» «Le professeur se passionne pour la géographie.» «Le prof aime la géographie, et aime l'enseigner.» «Le prof était un excellent instructeur. Grâce à lui, les sujets ennuyeux étaient tolérables.» «J'aime l'engagement du professeur McBoyle à l'égard de la géographie.» L'enthousiasme de M. McBoyle pouvait prendre the student evaluations. Geoff consistently scores in the excellent category with more than 60 % of the students give him the top mark. These scores are complemented by the many comments students write on the back of their evaluation forms. A small sample of these provides some insight into what makes Geoff a great teacher. For instance, Professor Boyle teaches early on Monday morning, a task that can often lead to disaster. But not for Geoff, "Professor Boyle - one of the few things that get me out of my bed at 8:00 am." "McBoyle's enthusiasm kept the class awake every morning." "Only 8:30 class I have never fallen asleep in." Along with his exceptional pedagogical skills, it is also evident that Professor McBoyle's enthusiasm and love for the subject are one of the key ingredient. "Teacher is enthusiastic and understanding, straightforward and organised." "The professor gets excited about geography." "The prof loves geography and loves teaching it." "The prof. was an excellent instructor. He made dull topics tolerable." "I like Professor McBoyle's commitment to the subject of geography." This enthusiasm could become entertaining as "McBoyle waking you up in the morning by jumping up and down." Even his Scottish accent added some spice to the lectures. This took place without ever loosing the goal of learning about physical geography. Geoff has had a profound influence of students' view of the world as well as on their careers. Many have chosen geography as a field of study after having been exposed to the subject in Geoff's class. To give a more complete picture of Geoff's style as a teacher, let us quote from a student's letter that supported the nomination to NCGE: "He taught a second-year course in climatology in the early years. He would come into class in the winter with those black and red rubber boots, walk across the stage, kick off the boots and teach the class in stocking feet. As the lecture went on, Geoff would get more and more involved in the lecture. By the end of the class his socks would be hanging off the end of his toes." Geoff is truly a great teacher that is committed to the discipline of geography and to the students that want to learn it. In recognition of the outstanding contributions of Geoff McBoyle to the teaching of geography, we are pleased to honour him with the Canadian Association of Geographers Award for Excellence in Teaching.

7 un aspect divertissant : «M.McBoyle nous réveille le matin en sautant sur place.» Même son accent écossais donnait une touche colorée aux exposés. Néanmoins, il n'a jamais négligé pour autant l'objectif ultime : l'apprentissage de la géographie physique. M. McBoyle a profondément influencé le regard des étudiants sur le monde et sur leur carrière. Bon nombre ont choisi de faire des études en géographie après avoir découvert cette matière dans ses cours. L'extrait suivant d'une lettre d'un étudiant à l'appui de la candidature de M. McBoyle au NCGE brosse un tableau plus complet du style d'enseignement de ce dernier : «Au début, il enseignait un cours de deuxième année en climatologie. Durant l'hiver, il arrivait en classe chaussé de bottes de caoutchouc noires et rouges; il traversait l'estrade, se débarrassait de ses bottes et donnait le cours en chaussettes. À mesure que le cours avançait, il était de plus en plus absorbé par sa matière. À la fin du cours, ses chaussettes pendaient au bout de ses orteils.» M. McBoyle est véritablement un excellent professeur, qui fait preuve d'engagement à l'égard de la géographie et des étudiants qui veulent la découvrir. En reconnaissance de la contribution exceptionnelle de M. Geoff McBoyle à l'enseignement de la géographie, nous sommes heureux de lui décerner le Prix d'excellence pour l'enseignement en géographie de l Association canadienne des géographes. Le prix de Géographie au service du gouvernement ou des affaires Professeur Barry Wellar, Université d'ottawa Pendant plus de 30 ans, M. Barry Wellar a contribué à l'avancement de la recherche dans des secteurs allant de l'imagerie par satellite et de la télédétection à l'aménagement rural et à l'urbanisation. Il a intégré la science de la géographie appliquée à la politique publique. Ses connaissances et ses compétences spécialisées sont recherchées dans le monde entier. M. Wellar a commencé à " mettre la géographie au service du gouvernement " à titre d'étudiant de cycle supérieur à la Northwestern University, où il menait ses études et offrait des conseils éclairés à la NASA, à l'usgs et au Bureau of Census des États-Unis. Ses recherches ont contribué d'une manière importante à l'utilisation de satellites dans le cadre de la surveillance de l'évolution de l'affectation des terres, ainsi qu'à l'application de la télédétection dans le contexte de l'analyse urbaine et régionale. Il a élaboré de nouveaux Award for Geography in the Service of Government or Business Professor Barry Wellar, Université d'ottawa For over 30 years Barry Wellar has pioneered research into projects ranging from satellite imagery and remote sensing to rural and urban development. He has brought the science of applied geography into public policy. His knowledge and expertise are sought the world over. Barry Wellar began contributing to Geography in the Service of Government as a graduate student at Northwestern University where he conducted studies and provided expert advice for the NASA, the USGS and the US Bureau of Census. His investigations made significant contributions to the use of satellites to monitor land use changes and to the application of remote sensing to urban and regional analysis. He developed new ways to measure traffic flows and new techniques for incorporating environmental factors into urban and regional development. Later at the University of Kansas, Professor Wellar conducted more government research. He designed one of the initial environmental impact assessments for the US Army Corps of Engineers, directed a first-ever Neighborhood Analysis project and was a primary researcher in the Integrated Municipal Information Systems project, a first study investigating the use of information technology in local governments. In 1972, he won a NASA competition to design an information system for dynamically monitoring US land use change. In 1972, Professor Wellar returned to Canada at the Federal Ministry of State for Urban Affairs. His policy and research contributions included the design of eco-development measurement techniques, a research agenda on small community development policies, the development of quantitative approaches to social indicators and the creation of information technology research programs for the OECD and the UN. Upon his appointment in 1979 as a Professor of Geography at the Université d Ottawa Barry Wellar pursued with conviction his involvement in public policy. In addition to teaching workshops and advising agencies on Geographic Information Systems, he undertook consulting assignments. In that role, he designed a new tax regime system for residents of Canada's northern and isolated communities ad developed and tested the Walking Security Index. More recently he proposed an Urban Sustainability Index to the Prime Minister's Task Force on National Urban Strategy. Throughout his career as a researcher, civil servant and academic, Dr. Wellar has contributed to -7-

8 moyens de mesurer le débit de circulation, ainsi que de nouvelles techniques visant à intégrer des facteurs environnementaux au développement urbain et régional. Par la suite, M. Wellar a continué d'effectuer de la recherche pour le gouvernement à la University of Kansas. Il a conçu l'une des études d'impact initiales au nom de l'army Corps of Engineers des États-Unis, dirigé le tout premier projet d'analyse de quartier et collaboré, à titre de chercheur principal, au projet de systèmes informatiques municipaux, une étude préliminaire axée sur l'utilisation de la technologie de l'information au sein des administrations locales. En 1972, il a remporté un concours de la NASA en vue de la conception d'un système d'information axé sur la surveillance dynamique de l'évolution de l'utilisation des sols aux États-Unis. En 1972, M. Wellar est rentré au Canada, où il s'est joint au ministère fédéral des Affaires urbaines. Sa contribution aux secteurs de la politique et de la recherche a comporté la conception de techniques d'évaluation de l'écodéveloppement, un programme de recherche axé sur les politiques en matière de développement de petites collectivités, l'élaboration de méthodes quantitatives liées aux indicateurs sociaux, de même que la conception de programmes de recherche en matière de technologie de l'information destinés à l'ocde et à l'onu. Au moment de sa nomination à titre de professeur de géographie à l'université d'ottawa, en 1979, M. Wellar a poursuivi avec conviction sa contribution à la politique publique. En plus d'animer des ateliers d'enseignement et de fournit des conseils en matière de systèmes d'informations géographiques à des organismes, il a entrepris des affectations à titre d'expert-conseil. En cette qualité, il a conçu un nouveau régime fiscal destiné aux résidants de collectivités nordiques et isolées du Canada; il a également élaboré et mis à l'essai l'" indice de sécurité des piétons ". Récemment, il a proposé un indice de durabilité urbaine au groupe de travail du premier ministre sur la stratégie urbaine nationale. Tout au long de sa carrière à titre de chercheur, de fonctionnaire et d'universitaire, M. Wellar a participé à la contribution de la géographie à l'administration aux niveaux municipal, provincial, fédéral et international; en outre, il est considéré comme l'un des principaux promoteurs de l'intégration d'un facteur géographique à la formulation de politiques publiques. Il a contribué à de nombreux aspects de la méthodologie liée aux secteurs de la télédétection, des sciences de l'information géographique, des études d'impact et de la planification de l'écosystème. Sa contribution a été reconnue par l'association of American Geographers, par des gouvernements et par de multiples organismes. L Association canadienne des géographes est très heureuse de rendre hommage à M. Barry Wellar. Geography in the Service of Government at the municipal, provincial, federal and international levels, and is regarded as a leading proponent of the need to include a geo-factor when formulating public policies. He has made numerous methodological contributions in the fields of remote sensing, geographic information science, impact assessment and ecosystem planning. His contributions have been recognised by the Association of American Geographers, by governments, and by numerous other organisations. It is with great pleasure that the Canadian Association of Geographers Association of Geographers honours Professor Barry Wellar. ROBIN P. ARMSTRONG MEMORIAL PRIZE FOR EXCELLENCE IN NATIVE STUDIES Ms. Bettina Koschade, who completed her M.A. in Geography at Queen's University, under the supervision of Dr. Evelyn J. Peters was awarded the 2004 Robin P. Armstrong Memorial Prize for Excellence in Native Studies. The title of Ms. Koschade's thesis was "The Tay River watershed is our responsibility": The Ardoch Algonquins and the Environmental Review Tribunal Hearings. CONGRATULATIONS On April 2 nd 2004 the University of Le Havre, France awarded Brian Slack an honorary degree. At a special awards ceremony attended by many dignitaries from the local community, and including the Canadian Ambassador, he was one of five international scholars recognised by the university. The citation recognised his contributions to maritime research, his openness to international collaborations, and the encouragement he has given to young scholars. Dr. John Mannion, Professor of Cultural Geography, Memorial University of Newfoundland, was awarded an honorary Doctor of Letters degree by the National University of Ireland Galway. "Mannion's work has come to have a profound effect upon how we understand the past and the relationships between Ireland and Newfoundland", said Registrar Browne during the ceremony. Mannion received the doctorate to honour and recognize forty years of meticulous historical and geographical scholarship on the migrations of the peoples of Ireland to Newfoundland in the period

9 Assemblée Générale Annuelle 2004 Rapport du Président J ai le plaisir de vous rapporter que l Association canadienne des géographes a connu une année remplie et qu elle se porte bien. Comme vous pourrez le constater dans le rapport du secrétairetrésorier, notre situation financière est toujours saine, ce qui nous permet d envisager de nouvelles actions. Bien que le nombre de membres soit encore sous la cible de que nous nous étions fixée comme objectif il y a trois ans, il a connu une augmentation notamment dans le nombre de membres étudiants et de nouveaux membres. Ceci est très encourageant et tend à montrer que nos efforts pour recruter des étudiants ont porté fruit. Comme j avais déjà eu l occasion de le constater, nos membres sont toujours très actifs et leur contribution est reconnue à l échelle nationale et internationale comme en témoignent par exemple le succès des géographes dans divers concours nationaux. Je suis impressionné par la diversité, la richesse, l originalité et la profondeur du savoir produit par les géographes d ici démontrant à quel point notre discipline est dynamique. Ces signes positifs sont indéniables et nous tentons de maintenir le cap pour que cela continue. Comme j en avais fait état l an dernier, on se doit encore de reconnaître que l excellence et surtout la pertinence de cette contribution ne sont pas assez visibles à l extérieur de notre discipline. L érosion de la présence de la géographie dans nos écoles secondaires à travers le pays est aussi inquiétante et nous demande d agir vite. Voici l essentiel des actions que nous avons menées cette année. Une première année complétée de notre entente avec Blackwell pour la production et la publication de notre revue Le géographe canadien. Comme vous le verrez dans le rapport du rédacteur, la publication de la revue est non seulement à date mais elle se fait avec beaucoup de professionnalisme et de diligence de la part de l éditeur. Les retombées escomptées sont majeures autant sur le plan financier que sur celui de la diffusion de la recherche publiée par les géographes. Notre revue est maintenant distribuée dans plus de 1250 bibliothèques, soit une augmentation du double par rapport à l année dernière. Le rédacteur prend aussi des mesures pour accroître la visibilité de la revue ici et à l étranger. La production de notre annuaire réalisée dans les délais prévus. Après une année plus difficile en 2002, la production de l annuaire est revenue en 2003 à son calendrier normal. Je tiens ici à dire à quel point j apprécie les efforts de Kim Falcino et des directions de département pour produire à chaque année un document d une très grande valeur pour tous nos membres. L annuaire est un outil de travail indispensable et unique. La mise en action de mesures pour recruter un plus grand 2004 Annual General Meeting President s Report It is my pleasure to report that the Canadian Association of Geographers has had a very good year and is healthy. As you can see from the financial statements, our position is still sound, allowing us to look forward to new actions. Even though our membership is still below the target of 1,000 we set three years ago, it has grown, especially in the student member and new member categories. This is very encouraging and tends to show that our efforts to recruit students have paid off. As I have already had the opportunity to report, our members are very active and their contribution is recognized across Canada and around the world, as evidenced by the success of our geographers in various national competitions. I am very impressed by the diversity, wealth, originality and depth of knowledge produced by Canadian geographers, which shows how dynamic our discipline is. These positive signs are undeniable and we will try to stay the course. As I said last year, we still have to recognize that the excellence, and especially the relevance, of this contribution do not have enough visibility outside our discipline. The erosion of the presence of geography in our secondary schools across the country is also disturbing and requires us to act swiftly. Here are the highlights of our actions this year. A first full year of our agreement with Blackwell for the production and publication of our journal The Canadian Geographer / Le géographe canadien. As you will see in the editor s report, the journal s publication is not only on schedule but it shows great professionalism and diligence on the part of the publisher. The expected spinoffs are major, both financially and in the distribution of geographers published research. Our magazine is now distributed in over 1250 libraries, twice as many as last year. The editor is also taking steps to enhance the visibility of the journal both here and abroad. Production of our directory within deadline. After a more difficult year in 2002, production of the directory returned to its normal schedule in I must mention how much I appreciate the efforts of Kim Falcino and of the departmental administrations in producing a document of such great value to all our members every year. The directory is a unique and indispensable tool. Implementation of measures to recruit more student members. One of our constant objectives is to promote geography and the Association to graduate students. We have deployed considerable efforts to encourage a student presence at the annual and regional meetings. Again this year, the student Board member organized sessions on crucial issues for students and produced a student column in every issue of our newsletter. The CAG representatives in the departments played a very -9-

10 nombre de membres étudiants. Un de nos objectifs demeure toujours de promouvoir la géographie et l Association auprès des étudiants gradués. Nous avons déployé des efforts considérables pour favoriser la présence étudiante aux congrès annuels et régionaux. Cette année encore, la conseillère étudiante a organisé des séances sur des questions primordiales pour les étudiants et elle a produit une chronique étudiante dans chaque numéro de notre bulletin. Les représentants de l ACG dans les départements ont joué un rôle très proactifs dans le renouvellement et le recrutement de membres étudiants. Leurs actions ont porté fruit. Des départements comme par exemple Wilfrid Laurier University et l University of Saskatchewan ont été particulièrement dynamiques dans le recrutement de membres étudiants et je les félicite. D autres actions sont à venir, notamment de nouveaux documents de publicité et des affiches. L entrée en fonction de notre nouveau site internet. Votre exécutif a décidé en juin 2003 d investir dans le site internet de l Association. Le nouveau site a été lancé en octobre dernier. Il semble rencontrer les attentes des membres et il deviendra un outil essentiel de communication et un site d échange pour les membres. Le site a déjà été fortement utilisé pour le renouvellement de l adhésion des membres, surtout par les étudiants. La mise à jour du site est relativement facile et elle est faite régulièrement par Valerie Shoffey ce qui donne au site un caractère dynamique. Le site est aussi entièrement bilingue. Nous travaillons présentement à l arrimage du site du Géographe canadien avec le site internet de l ACG. L exécutif est très heureux des résultats de l investissement qu il a fait. Participation à deux réunions régionales et aurait souhaité assisté aux autres. Cette année, j ai eu l occasion d assister à deux congrès de nos divisions régionales. J ai été invité à participer au congrès de la division atlantique qui se tenait à Mount Allison où le thème portait sur l éducation et à celui de la division ontarienne organisé par Queen s. J ai été impressionné par le dynamisme de ces divisions et par la qualité des interventions et des communications. Il y a des signes de vitalité évidente dans les divisions. J aurais aimé participer aux réunions des autres divisions mais des conflits d horaire m en ont empêché. Participation de l ACG à la consultation du CRSH sur ses nouvelles orientations. J ai participé à Ottawa à une réunion organisée par la Fédération canadienne des sciences humaines pour discuter avec les autres présidents d associations des projets que le CRSH a soumis récemment pour consultation. L ACG a aussi soumis un rapport résumant ses positions. En gros, nous avons défendu l idée que tout changement devrait se faire en conformité avec le mandat du CRSH, ce qui signifie que les programmes de subvention actuels devraient être proactive role in the renewal and recruiting of student members. Their actions produced results. Departments at institutions like Wilfrid Laurier University and the University of Saskatchewan were particularly dynamic in recruiting student members, for which I congratulate them. Other actions are pending, particularly new advertising literature and posters. Launch of our new Web site. Your Executive decided in June 2003 to invest in the Association s Web site. The new site was launched last October. It seems to meet the members expectations and will become an essential communication tool and a site for discussion among the members. The site has been very useful for the renewal of membership particularly among students. Updating the site is also relatively easy. This is done regularly by Valerie Shoffey, giving the site a dynamic quality. The site is also fully bilingual. We are currently working on interfacing The Canadian Geographer site with the CAG site. The Executive is very pleased with the results of its investment. Participation in two regional meetings and would have liked to attend others. This year, I had the opportunity to attend two conventions of our regional divisions. I was invited to attend the Atlantic Division meeting held at Mount Allison on the theme of education, and the Ontario Division gathering organized by Queen s. I was impressed by the vigour of these divisions and the quality of the interventions and papers. There are clear signs of vitality in the divisions. I would have liked to attend the meetings of other divisions but was prevented to do so by schedule conflicts. CAG participation in the SSHRC consultation on its new orientations. I attended a meeting in Ottawa organized by the Canadian Federation for the Humanities to discuss with the other association presidents projects that SSHRC submitted recently for consultation. The CAG submitted a report summarizing its positions. On the whole, we defended the idea that any change should be in accordance with the SSHRC mandate, which means that the current subsidy programs should be improved before getting involved in a very wide-ranging venture of networking and dissemination of knowledge. For the members of the CAG, individual research is essential to the development of the discipline. Far from opposing the changes as such, the CAG wants to obtain assurances that the funds necessary for SSHRC s expansion would be available before any drastic change of structures is implemented. The CAG also acknowledged the benefits offered by interdisciplinary research, which SSHRC also favours. The CAG s positions were largely in line with those of the other associations. Together, they sent a clear message to SSHRC in the development of its future plan. CAG participation in the reinvigoration of the Canadian Geoscience Council. The Canadian Geoscience Council -10-

11 bonifiés avant de se lancer dans une très vaste entreprise de réseautage et de dissémination des connaissances. Pour les membres de l ACG, la recherche individuelle est essentielle au développement de la discipline. Loin de s opposer aux changements comme tel, l ACG a souhaité obtenir des assurances que les fonds nécessaires à l expansion du CRSH seraient au rendez-vous avant de changer drastiquement les structures. L ACG a aussi reconnu les bénéfices qu offre l interdisciplinarité en recherche, ce que prône aussi le CRSH. Les positions de l ACG rejoignaient largement celles des autres associations. Ensemble, elles ont lancé un message clair au CRSH dans l élaboration de son plan d avenir. Participation de l ACG à la relance du Conseil géoscientifique canadien. Le Conseil géoscientifique canadien (CGC) vit des moments difficiles et il est remis en question. En novembre dernier avait lieu une première réunion des présidents des associations membres du CGC. Cette réunion s est avérée très positive et on y sentait une volonté de reprendre les choses en main. Une des décisions les plus importantes a été de consacrer le rôle primordial que doit jouer le CGC dans l éducation du public et des politiciens dans le domaine des sciences de la terre. Des actions seront prises à l automne 2004 pour lancer une campagne visant à accroître la visibilité des géosciences. Le renouvellement de l entente avec le Conseil national de la recherche du Canada. L ACG a renouvelé son entente avec le CNRC visant à défrayer les coûts de son affiliation avec l Union géographique internationale. Comme vous le savez, les membres de l ACG sont très actifs au sein de l UGI et de ses commissions. En 2004, notre entente avec le CNRC venait à échéance. Dans le processus de renouvellement, nous nous sommes rendus compte que le Conseil national canadien (CNC) visant à coordonner nos efforts et notre participation à l UGI n existait plus et qu il fallait le raviver et le rendre opérationnel. Ceci est une condition du renouvellement de l entente avec le CNRC. Nous relançons donc cette année le CNC. La planification d actions pour promouvoir l éducation géographique. Sous l impulsion de Stuart Semple, le Conseil canadien pour l éducation géographique de concert avec la Société géographique royale du Canada envisagent une stratégie pour rehausser la place de la géographie auprès du public et dans les écoles. L ACG et son groupe d étude en éducation géographique joueront un rôle de premier plan dans l élaboration de cette stratégie qui inclura probablement un sondage, un forum et d autres actions visant les médias. La planification des congrès pour les années suivantes. J ai le plaisir de rapporter que les prochains congrès annuels se tiendront à University of Western Ontario en 2005 (avec la Fédération) (CGC) is going through difficult times and its future is in question. Last November a first meeting was held of the presidents of the CGC s member associations. This meeting turned out to be very positive and there was a noticeable will to put the organization s house in order. One of the most important decisions was to enshrine the essential role the CGC should play in educating the public and politicians in earth sciences. Actions will be taken in fall 2004 to launch a campaign to increase geoscientific visibility. Renewal of the agreement with the National Research Council Canada. The CAG renewed its agreement with the NRC, with the aim of defraying the costs of its affiliation with the International Geographical Union. As you know, the CAG s members are very active in the IGU and its commissions. In 2004, our agreement with NRC expired. During the renewal process, we realized that the Canadian National Council (CNC) for the purpose of coordinating our efforts and our participation in the IGU no longer existed and that it had to be revived and rendered operational. This is a condition of the renewal of the agreement with NRC. We are therefore relaunching the CNC this year. Planning activities on geographical education. At Stuart Semple s instigation, the Canadian Council for Geographic Education along with the Royal Canadian Geographical Society are discussing actions to promote geographic education. These actions will heavily involve the CAG and its study group on geographic education. We are currently assessing the strategy and sequence of actions which could include a survey, a forum and enhanced visibility in the media. Planning conventions for the years ahead. I have the pleasure to report that the next annual conventions will be held at University of Western Ontario in 2005 (with the Federation) Lakehead University in 2006 University of Saskatchewan in 2007 (with the Federation) This is my final report as President of the CAG. The time has passed very quickly and I have the impression that there wasn t enough of it to carry out several actions. I would like to acknowledge the outstanding work done for the organization of our national meeting at the Université de Moncton. I wish to thank the members for their support and their involvement in the development of our Association. I would also like to mention the remarkable work of the members of the Executive, the chairs of the study groups and the editorial board of The Canadian Geographer / Le Géographe canadien. These people put their hearts into the discipline and deserve our support and our sincere thanks. I want to express my sincere appreciation of -11-

Le temps a passé très rapidement et j ai l impression qu il a manqué pour concrétiser plusieurs actions. J exprime toute ma gratitude aux organisateurs de notre réunion annuelle à l Université de Moncton. Je tiens à remercier les membres de leur appui et de leur implication dans le développement de notre association. J aimerais aussi souligner le travail remarquable des membres de l exécutif, des présidents et présidentes des groupes d étude et l équipe de rédaction du Géographe canadien. Ces gens s investissent pour la discipline et ils méritent notre appui et nos sincères remerciements. Finalement, je remercie Valerie Shoffey pour son excellent travail et pour son dévouement pour l ACG. Travailler avec vous tous aura été un très grand plaisir. Je souhaite bonne chance à mon successeur, Chris Sharpe, et lui offre mon soutien dans la poursuite de ses objectifs à la tête de notre association. André G. Roy Président de l Association canadienne des géographes 16 mai 2004 Valerie Shoffey s excellent work and dedication to the CAG. Working with all of you has been a very great pleasure. I wish the best of luck to my successor, Chris Sharpe, and offer him my support in the pursuit of his objectives at the helm of our Association. André G. Roy President of the Canadian Association of Geographers May 16, 2004 NEWS FROM THE STUDY GROUPS The CAG Economic and Social Change Study Group is pleased to announce the winner of this year's student paper prize competition. Once again, the judges had a difficult time deciding on just one to receive the award. I would first like to congratulate all the entrants on their fine papers. However, only one award can be made, so I am pleased to announce that this year's prize is awarded to Angela Hunter, University of Victoria, for her paper entitled "Slum Upgrading: Improving Quality of Life While Building a Neighbourhood: A Case Study of the Pedra Sobre Pedra Settlement in Sao Paulo, Brazil". Well done Angela! And best wishes to all the entrants.

14 CALL-FOR-PAPERS "Bridging Communities: Community Theory and Practice in a Changing World" Sept 30-Oct 2, 2004, Contemporary Studies campus of Wilfrid Laurier in Brantford Ontario This conference is being organized to enhance interdisciplinary ties between those in the academic world exploring ideas of community, and those practitioners and organizations focused on community work. Across the disciplines we find diverse definitions, boundaries and societal implications associated with ideas of 'community' - making for complex and contested theoretical terrain. Meanwhile, community, as a powerful taken-for-granted discourse in our day-to-day worlds, serves as the basis for a diversity of local social, environmental, and political practices. And, it does this within continuously shifting social and political contexts. It is this juncture of community theory and praxis upon which the Laurier Brantford conference is situated this coming September 30-October 2, Our keynote speaker for this conference will be Dr. Susan Wismer, associate professor and chair of the Environment and Resource Studies program at the University of Waterloo. After a 20 year career as a community development worker, she joined academia and since then has pursued issues, both in Canada and internationally, related to equity, gender, sustainable livelihoods, and community-based development. We invite paper submissions and workshops which theorize about communities and/or provide grounded experience in community work, while also addressing the issue of how to bridge gaps between community theory and praxis. The kinds of areas which we see as appropriate to the conference theme include, but are not restricted to: Community and: Governance, Identity and Place, Exclusion/Inclusion, Development, History, Education, Culture(s), Change, Difference, Celebration, Sustainability, Environment, and Symbolism Deepening the examination of community while developing stronger ties and understandings with those doing the work of 'community' will lead to a collection of this 'bridging' experience for publication. Please send abstracts of either your workshop idea or paper, with a title and brief description of words, and contact information, to: Robert Feagan at or Brenda Murphy website:http://www.wlu.ca/~wwwbrant/pages/confere nce/ provides more detail on Registration and conference scheduling information Deadline for submissions is June 15th, CALL FOR PAPERS First Nations, First Thoughts Centre of Canadian Studies University of Edinburgh Thursday 5 and Friday 6 May, 2005 Keynote Speaker: This interdisciplinary conference seeks to bring together scholars to explore the lessons which might be drawn for other states and for international bodies (e.g. the Council of Europe and the European Union) from the constitutional management of cultural pluralism in Canada. Contemporary Canada is unique not only for the complexity of its ethnocultural relations but also for the level of debate in recent decades over how best to accommodate this diversity within the constitution. Prominent issues within Canadian pluralism include: federalism; official bilingualism; the constitutional accommodation of Quebec; the status of aboriginal peoples; the entrenchment of cultural rights in the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, and the development of a sophisticated, juridical, human rights culture; and immigration and the principle of multiculturalism. At a time when scholars, policy-makers and judges in the UK and elsewhere in Europe are reassessing the constitutional arrangements in relation to national and cultural pluralism within their own states, the strengths and weaknesses in the Canadian constitutional experience are increasingly seen as an important source of comparison. It is anticipated that presentations will fall within the following themes: constitutionalism, citizenship and democracy; participation in processes of constitutional change; constitutional outcomes - autonomy, representation and recognition; cultural pluralism and human rights; and adjudication and the resolution of constitutional disputes. Please send paper proposals (200 word max.) and a 1-page curriculum vitae by 30 November 2004 to Grace Owens, Centre of Canadian Studies, 21 George Square, Edinburgh EH8 9LD, Scotland or to: (please do not send as attachments). The Centre of Canadian Studies regrets that we are unable to assist participants with travel or accommodation costs. However, a concessionary registration fee will be available for postgraduate students and the unwaged. -14-

15 CHRONIQUE DU PRÉSIDENT continuée... renommée collective de ces personnes. Reste à savoir si ma gouverne sera aussi «éclairée et chevronnée» que M. Roy l affirme. J apprécie toutefois sa confiance. J entame mon mandat de deux ans animé de sentiments mixtes : une certaine appréhension à l idée de devoir intégrer des heures supplémentaires à mon horaire hebdomadaire, une profonde reconnaissance à l égard de l honneur qui m a été accordé, ainsi que le plaisir anticipé de collaborer avec les autres membres de la direction afin d élaborer de nouvelles initiatives, tout en appuyant les valeurs fondamentales de l Association. En tant que collectivité de géographes, nous devons notamment préciser ces valeurs. M. Roy a effleuré cette question dans le message du président précédent. La documentation récente révèle que, même si nous savons que notre discipline comporte un fondement essentiel et que nous croyons le connaître, de nombreux collègues d autres domaines l ignorent et nous relèguent donc au second plan. Je devrai aborder cette question dans un prochain article. Je me suis joint à l ACG pendant l année du centenaire, à titre d étudiant de premier cycle de l université Carleton. J ai tout d abord été affecté au bureau d inscription de l assemblée générale annuelle (AGA) qui avait lieu, cette année-là, à Carleton. C était tout juste avant mon départ pour le Yukon, où je devais exercer des fonctions d adjoint local auprès de M. J. Peter Johnson, Jr. (à ne pas confondre avec M. Peter G. Johnson, de l «autre» université d Ottawa!) Mes liens avec l ACG sont depuis demeurés solides, tout comme ma conviction qu elle joue un rôle utile, voire essentiel, dans le développement et la protection de la géographie au Canada. Tout comme bon nombre d entre vous, je suis rentré récemment de Moncton, où avait lieu notre assemblée générale annuelle, rempli de l énergie qui découle habituellement de cette occasion de rencontrer quelques-uns des membres les plus brillants et remarquables de notre collectivité. Je suis toujours frappé par l impression indéniable d énergie, de dynamisme et d assurance que nous laisse notre discipline lors de nos réunions annuelles. Comme toujours, j ai aimé découvrir une autre université; je n en avais pas eu l occasion auparavant. J aimerais souligner l excellent travail des trois coordonnateurs : MM. Guy Vincent et Adrien Berubé, de l Université de Moncton, et M. Robert Summerby-Murray, de Mount Allison University. L organisation d une réunion annuelle constitue toujours une tâche extrêmement exigeante; cependant, la tâche de ces derniers était d autant plus difficile et complexe, car ils se trouvaient dans des campus différents. Néanmoins, ils s en sont acquittés avec brio. La réussite de leurs efforts est illustrée par le fait que l on a enregistré 370 participants suite la page... PRESIDENT S COLUMN continued... reputation. Whether my guidance will be as wise and experienced as André suggests it will be remains to be seen! But I appreciate his confidence. I begin my two year term with a mixture of emotions: a wary appreciation of the additional time that will have to be carved out of my weekly schedule; a grateful appreciation of the honour that I have been accorded; and pleasure at the prospect of working with the other members of the Executive in mapping out some new initiatives, while supporting the core values of the Association. One of the tasks facing us as a community of geographers is a need to clarify what those values are. André Roy touched on this issue in the previous President s Column. Recent literature suggests that while we may feel confident that we have a disciplinary core, and that we know what it is, many of our colleagues in other disciplines do not, and they relegate us to the sidelines as a result. This is an issue I will address in a subsequent column. I joined the CAG in Centennial Year as an undergraduate student at Carleton University. My first task was to work on the registration desk for the AGM which was held at Carleton that year just before I headed off to the Yukon to work as a field assistant for J. Peter Johnson, Jr., (not to be confused with the Peter G. Johnson from that other Ottawa university!) My attachment to the CAG has remained strong ever since, as has my conviction that it has a useful, and perhaps even vital role to play in the development and protection of geography in the country. Like many of you, I have recently returned from the AGM in Moncton filled with the usual energy that derives from the opportunity of rubbing shoulders with some of the best and brightest in our community. I am always struck by the overwhelming impression one gets at the annual meeting of a vibrant, dynamic, self-assured discipline. As always it was a pleasure to visit a different campus, in my case one I had never had the chance to explore previously. I would like to take this opportunity to pay tribute to the three cocoordinators: Guy Vincent and Adrien Berubé of the Université de Moncton and Robert Summerby-Murray of Mount Allison University. The task of organizing an annual meeting is always enormously challenging, but theirs was more difficult and complex than usual, because of the fact that they are located at three different campuses. However, they did an exemplary job. The success of their efforts is demonstrated by the fact that there were 370 paid registrants, a substantial number for an AGM held outside central Canada. Perhaps more significant is the fact that 155 of those registrants were students. It was also wonderful to see so many papers delivered in French. On behalf of the Association I would like to extend a most sincere thank continued

16 payants, nombre appréciable pour une AGA qui avait lieu en dehors du centre du Canada. Le fait que 155 des participants aient été des étudiants est peut-être encore plus significatif. De plus, il y a lieu de se réjouir qu un aussi grand nombre d exposés aient été présentés en français. Au nom de l Association, je tiens à remercier sincèrement les membres du trio maintenant épuisé, ainsi que toutes les personnes qui les ont aidés à nous accueillir à Moncton.
