Many thanks to the wonderful folks who love Uranium City and who have generously supported me and my collaborator, Professor Bill Bunn. Without these individuals, this work and others wouldn't be possible: Mayor Dean Classen, Allen Augier, Ken Mercredi, Giselle Classen, Patricia Sandberg, Carolyn Saunders, Joe Muldoon, Ty Lloyd, Shelley Fisher, Roland Melzer, Andrea Melzer, Patrick Deranger, Lee Deranger, Hubert Mackie, Bernie McCaffery, Lorraine MacIntosh, and Willard and Elaine Boschman. We look forward to meeting more of the amazing people who have called Uranium City home and who love this place. We see and recognize why you love it!
Uranium City is located on Treaty 8 land, home to Dene, Cree, and Metis peoples before the mines opened.
Thank you to my friend and colleague, Bill Bunn, for sharing in this work with me.
This site is self-funded in order to share photographic documentation of Uranium City from the initial field visit of May 2017. The second visit is scheduled for May 28, 2018.
Funding support for travel and research has been generously provided by Mount Royal University's Institute for Environmental Sustainability and the Office of the Dean, Faculty of Arts. Many thanks to IES Director Connie Van der Byl and to Dean Jennifer Pettit. Without support, this ongoing work would not be possible.
Many thanks to Steve Hartman, Ruth Brennan, and Poul Holm for inviting us to present our scholarly findings at the UNESCO World Humanities Conference in 2017 in Liege, Belgium.
Subsequent peer-reviewed work can be found in Humanities Journal, January 2018.
