Dr. Laurie Brinklow and Lori Mayne, two faculty members at the University of Prince Edward Island, have been awarded SSHRC Exchange Publication Awards. Two $5,000 awards are given out annually to support the publication of manuscripts written or edited by UPEI faculty, including contract and sessional faculty, in the social sciences and humanities. Both of these books will be published by Island Studies Press in 2021.

Brinklow is coordinator of the Institute of Island Studies and the UNESCO Chair in Island Studies and Sustainability, and teaches in the Master of Arts in Island Studies program at UPEI. Her manuscript is a collection of poetry titled My island’s the house I sleep in at night. Drawing from interviews with writers, artists, and musicians from Newfoundland and Tasmania, she weaves their words with her own poetic imaginings and explores the theme of “islandness.”

Mayne is a sessional instructor in the UPEI English department. Her manuscript, co-authored with Maureen Duffy Cobb, is titled The Chemistry of Innovation: Regis Duffy and the Story of DCL 500 Internal Server Error
