Dr. Mary Pettenger gets CONNECTed

Dr. Mary Pettenger attended the Project CONNECT training seminar in Ottawa in July 2010. Project CONNECT is sponsored in a joint program by the Government of Canada and the Center for the Study of Canada at the SUNY Plattsburgh. The seminar is designed to immerse new American Canadianists in "the political, economic and social realities of contemporary Canada"(http://www.plattsburgh.edu/offices/ academic/cesca/projectconnect.php) She, along with 17 other American scholars, spent a busy week learning about research opportunities and resources in Canada, attending lectures given by prominent Canadian academics on topics ranging for Canadian health care to Canadian foreign policy, meeting with members of the Canadian government and learning about the Canadian political system, touring the capital and other cultures sites, and networking with other Canadianists. Her trip was generously funded by a grant from Project CONNECT and a travel grant from the Canadian Studies program at Western Oregon University as part of the institutional grant received from the Canadian government.
