New Issue of Journal of New Brunswick Studies/Revue d’études sur le Nouveau-Brunswick
Exploring the province’s on-going social and economic balancing act as well as the impact the organized labour movement has had on public policy are the varied and timely subjects of the new issue of the Journal of New Brunswick Studies, a bilingual online journal of multi-disciplinary, peer-reviewed research.
The journal is at www.stu.ca/jnbs.
Dr. Tony Tremblay, editor of the journal, is professor of English Language and Literature and Canada Research Chair in New Brunswick Studies at St. Thomas University. He believes the journal reflects the need for careful research into the pressing issues of the day.
“Historian David Frank provides a brief history of the labour movement in the province and its importance in the lives of New Brunswickers. In complementary reflections, Donald Savoie and Thomas Bateman reveal the extent of the fiscal crisis at our doorstep, and David Dussault and René Blais consider the forestry industry in the province against both public and corporate interests.”
“Along with an article on one of our province’s first female lawyers, the issue certainly lives up to its mandate of providing New Brunswickers with thoughtful and timely research about the province,” said Tremblay.
“The days of sitting on the sidelines in New Brunswick are over and the Journal of New Brunswick Studies/Revue d’études sur le Nouveau-Brunswick provides a way for New Brunswickers to inform themselves,” he added.
