Geographers in the News Archives

2015 / 2016 Academic Year

Congratulations to Doctoral Candidate Sarah Mason

Sarah won the American Association of Geographers, 2015 Rural Geography Specialty Group Student Paper Competition!  Her paper, based on her PhD research was titled "The Plant is Up and Running and the Wounds are Yet to Heal: Biosolids Facility Siting, Community Conflict and Emotional Geographies in Rural Ontario" While it was a tight competition, as all of the submissions were of very high quality, the judges thought that Sarah's paper was creative, grounded solidly in the rural literature, and had tangible results that could be used to help solve ‘real life’ problems.  The judges also noted that Sarah handled herself in a very professional manner, and was able to field questions in a thorough, yet succinct way. Congratulations Sarah!
