Working Papers Reading Course
PLAN 675: Course Description and Objectives
This special topics reading course is intended as an opportunity for graduate students in the School of Planning at the University of Waterloo to become involved in on-going research on Canada’s changing suburbs. The course is inspired by the instructor’s involvement in the SSHRC funded research on Global Suburbanisms.
The objectives of the course are to continue building on students’ knowledge of the research process, to enhance their understanding of Canadian suburbanism, and to further develop their understanding of the writing and publishing process. Students will write one working paper on the changing suburbs, and/or its internal diversity, of a specific Canadian metropolitan area. Select guests from the School, and if feasible beyond, with relevant experience will speak with students about the writing and publishing process.
We will post summaries from our class meetings and guest speakers on the Atlas of Suburbanism webpage to make the discussions available to a broader audience. The working papers will also be made available on-line.
