Visit from Affiliated Researcher and PhD Candidate – Bienvenue au Canada!

The Pop Place Lab welcomed Affiliated Researcher Dr. Beatriz Fernández and PhD Candidate Anton Paumelle from the École des hautes études en sciences sociales (EHESS) to Canada!

After spending a few days in Montréal, Beatriz and Anton came to Kingston to meet Director Maxwell Hartt and Pop Place member Rachel Barber, and to discuss current and future projects on French and Canadian shrinking cities and age-friendly communities. The four researchers will be presenting a paper at the Association of European Schools of Planning (AESOP) conference in Paris this July, and Rachel will be working in Beatriz’s research lab as a visiting scholar this summer.
