Congratulations Cecilia Porter!

Wednesday, June 7, 2017

Please join us in congratulating Cecilia Porter, who successfully defended her MA thesis on Tuesday June 6th! Her thesis is entitled "Arvia’juaq National Historic Site: A Case Study in Heritage and Virtual Tourism in the Canadian Arctic”.

One of the coolest things about Porter's work is that everyone can view the results of her project online! She worked with elders in the community to help record an oral history of the Arvia'juaq National Historic Site. An interactive website with a virtual tour (including photos, history, and videos) is available online for everyone to view. Check it out here:

We would like to thank Cecilia's committee;
Supervisor - Dr. Dawson
Examination Committee Member – Dr. Oetelaar
Internal Examiner – Dr. Draper (Geography)
Neutral Chair – Dr. Lyons

Big thanks also to teh Arctic institute of North America (AINA) for hosting the website.

Congratulations Cecilia!
