Island Lecture Series—Time Flies: An Aerial History of Coastal and Ribbon Development on Prince Edward Island

with Dr. Josh MacFadyen

Based on his new book, Time Flies, Dr. MacFadyen will show that development in the coastal zone and along rural roads is accelerating on Prince Edward Island, just as the province is experiencing sustainability challenges in both areas. The talk will offer a unique combination of aerial photographs, historical maps, and more traditional sources, as it describes the province’s journey into modernity.

Josh MacFadyen is an associate professor and Canada research chair in Geospatial Humanities in the Faculty of Arts at the University of Prince Edward Island. He teaches in the Applied Communication, Leadership & Culture Program, and he leads the GeoREACH lab at UPEI which supports Geospatial Research in Atlantic Canadian History.

The talk will take place in the SDU Faculty Lounge.
