We look forward to seeing you, and thank Dr. Catharine Wilson for presenting at our Lunch and Learn Series.


Join the CFWW for a lunch and learn session with Dr. Catharine Wilson, Redelmeier Professor in Rural History at University of Guelph.


This talk and discussion focuses on Dr. Wilson's ongoing research, which seeks to understand the creation, maintenance and definition of neighbhourhood, its practical workings and imagined states. Specifically, this talk explores the idea that, to analyze disasters reveals the internal dynamics of neighbourhood moral economies and conflict resolution before the advent of police forces and first response teams.
