In the fall of 2016, Professors Campbell and Stuhl met with Emily Sherwood to discuss the possibility of creating an open source edition of “Northern Frontier Northern Homeland: The Report of the Mackenzie Valley Pipeline Inquiry.” Published in 1977 by Thomas R. Berger, the report influenced how Canadians viewed development in the north. Both professors developed annotation assignments based on this seminal work.
Professor Stuhl received permission to reproduce the report. Technology consultant Marlee Warwick worked with Emily Sherwood to develop the site on WordPress. Students in both classes then identified key terms in Chapters 6, 11, and 12, researched the terms, and created annotations using Hypothes.is.
Conceived at the outset as an ongoing project, the aim is to have subsequent classes continue annotating this important document to create a critical edition that is easily accessible to a wide audience.[Click here to view in a separate tab.]
