Thanks to the efforts of Dr. Joni Storie, the Department of Geography has reincarnated its newsletter. The previous incarnation, Dirty Earth, was last published back in the 1970s. After a thought provoking “name the newsletter contest”, GeoMatters was voted as the title for the newsletter. GeoMatters will be published twice a year; one edition each for the Fall and the Winter terms.

The newsletter is available to anyone with an interest in geography. It is available here as a download or you can receive a copy by e-mail (please fill out the form below). You can also keep up with us on Facebook (Department of Geography University of Winnipeg) or on Twitter (UWinnipeg Geography).

The Autumn 2015 issue of GeoMatters is built around the theme of community, both in research and in education. The faculty, staff and students in Geography are involved in community projects at many levels. In this issue, you will see how Geography faculty are involved in engaging the public using film and citizen-science websites that both informs and involves people in communities. It endeavours to show our students what research we do for the community and make opportunities for students to engage in service learning as part of their education experience. Research and education projects can also lead to effective change in policy, directly or indirectly, which impacts provincial or national communities. The best outcome of these projects is the legacy continues as we observe our students actively engaged with their communities, both on-campus and off-campus.
