Welcome to the EDST Blog
We respectfully acknowledge that our work at UBC takes place on the ancestral and unceded territory of the Musqueam people (xʷməθkʷəy̓əm).
This blogsite provides a forum for the EDST community (faculty, instructors, graduate students, and staff) to share ideas and to engage in conversation with others.
The impetus is the COVID-19 pandemic, which has created new social relations and priorities. Contributing by adding posts or commenting on posts will allow us to stay engaged while social distancing.
Please keep it going through your responses and contributions!
