upei island studies

Filed under: General,global islands — admin @ 8:25 am

Island studies is not the mere study of events and
phenomena on sites which happen to be islands;
islands do not merely reproduce on a manageable scale
the dynamics and the behaviour which exist elsewhere.
Islandness is an intervening variable which contours
and conditions physical and social events in distinct,
and distinctly relevant, ways.
— Godfrey Baldacchino,
UPEI Canada Research Chair in Island Studies
