Directions West Conference News

Valerie Korinek reports that twelve U of S students and faculty presented at the Third Annual Directions West Conference at the University of Calgary.

Jon Clapperton spoke "Unmaking a hunter's paradise: Rocky Mountains Park, the Stoney Nakoda, and Game Conservation" as part of the closing plenary session (which also featured Dr. Merle Massie, currently a post doctoral fellow at SENS at the U of S, and former History grad), Jon was awarded the NiCHE award for the best graduate or postdoctoral paper on environmental history presented at this conference.  

This is super news! And as Valerie notes, "Fantastic to see the U of S students do so well, and, naturally, see Jon's work awarded this distinction."
