This interdisciplinary research is a collaborative program that involves academics and students from across the academy (Humanities, Social Science and Physical Sciences) working with several partners including government agencies, non government organizations and syrup producers. This program also works across ‘ways of knowing’ to include Indigenous and non-Indigenous knowledge holders, local knowledges, etc. To date, within the program, several projects have been completed or are underway related to the development of interdisciplinary methodologies, GIS mapping, climate change perceptions and adaptation, and community resilience.
This program has received funding from a Wilfrid Laurier internal grant and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada.
