Congratulations

In September Rob Shields will be taking up his new position as Henry Marshall Tory Chair and Professor at the University of Alberta in Edmonton. Cross-appointed in Sociology and Art & Design, Rob says he'll continue to focus his research on place, social spatialization and digital and urban cultures, as well as continue to edit the Space and Culture journal.

As much as I will miss having my advisor close, I am so excited for him and can't wait to visit! I enjoyed my undergrad at U of A, and the university is the new home of the Canadian Association of Cultural Studies - whose recent conference CULTUREPOLES: City Spaces, Urban Politics & Metropolitan Theory brought out some really interesting work. Congratulations Rob - have fun!
