trouble: XKCD: The future's pretty cool! (future)
Migratory birds, by the nature of their behavior, cross boundaries. They are transcontinental species whose habitat in North America ranges from the Canadian arctic to Mexico. As such, the human conservation of these species has historically been complicated by the challenge of managing a mobile resource. The 1918 Migratory Bird Treaty between Canada and the United States was one example of the need to work across boundaries and borders in order to conserve these species of birds. But even within national borders, the conservation of migratory birds faced trans-boundary challenges.

On this episode, we explore the history of the Pacific Flyway refuge system and we speak with Robert M. Wilson, author of the new book, Seeking Refuge: Birds and Landscape of the Pacific Flyway.

The Alberta Women's Memory Project (AWMP) is digitizing original historical materials that document the history of women in Alberta. They will be made available to students and the public on our website: http://www.athabascau.ca/wmst/awmp/

If you have any diaries, letters, newsletters, clippings, photographs, periodicals, artwork, audio files, videos, or other original materials relating to women in Alberta, and wish to have them digitized and featured on our site, please contact Donica Belisle at donicab@athabascau.ca.

We are especially interested in acquiring materials related to:

Histories of Indigenous and M├ętis women;
Health and reproductive rights;
Music, theatre, literature, art, and crafts;
Histories of ethnic and racialized women;
Women's migration experiences;
Histories of Franco-Albertan women;
Feminism in Alberta;
Women and politics;
Women, employment, and labour;
Women in religious communities;
Personal experiences of women;
Women's participation in social justice movements;
Women in community organizations and events.

The AWMP is a joint community-university initiative dedicated to preserving and promoting the history of women in Alberta. For more information about the AWMP, visit our website at http://www.athabascau.ca/wmst/awmp/.

People wishing to share historical materials with the AWMP may either keep their materials after digitization, or work with the AWMP to deposit them in a museum or archives.

Hi All,

I am putting together a list of primary sources that are available for free on the internet.

[My prof, bless her wee cotton socks, thinks "history on the internet" is limited to Wikipedia.]

What are you favourite primary source websites?

my list is behind the cut )
