Standard Research Grant won

I am overjoyed to announce that Alex Khasnabish, of Mount Saint Vincent University, and I have been awarded a one-year Standard Research Grant from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada to study the radical imagination in Halifax, Nova Scotia.  This project develops an exciting, experimental method that uses new media (blogs, video, and social networking) not only to observe the radical imagination “from above” but to “convoke” the radical imagination with social movements.  I will post a full synopsis soon.   Research will begin in earnest in the fall of 2010.
