Ivan Emke is an associate professor of social and cultural studies at Grenfell Campus of Memorial University of Newfoundland in Corner Brook. But don't hold that against him. He was raised amidst the sheep, cattle and chickens of a mixed farm in Bruce County, between the mighty Lake Huron and the pristine Georgian Bay. Despite living in cities much of his adult life (so far...), he is a bit obsessed with the challenges of rural Canada. "Field notes" is a blog of his reflections on rural Canada. It is meant to intrigue, infuriate and inspire.
His blog about his trip to South America can be found here http://ivanemke.thewesternstar.com.
