Since its inception in Fall 2002, the CRC Studio has played host to many exciting projects, including the following:
The Paperback Revolution
An online exploration of paperback book history, "The Paperback Revolution" aims to inspire further interest and research into both paperback history in general and in our local repository, The Edmonton Collection. Don't miss the animated timeline and the virtual paperback rack!
Scrapbook Edmonton 2004
Scrapbook Edmonton 2004 celebrates Edmonton's centennial with an exploration of scrapbooks and scrapbooking. The Centennial Collection presents historic accounts of the city portrayed through scrapbooks and the Heritage Collection documents a variety of scrapbooks on a wide range of topics through the last 300 years. Our aim is to inspire many new generations of scrapbookers to carry on the tradition of documenting through creating their own scrapbooks.
The Edmonton Popular Literature Project
A 2003 summer research institute based in the CRC Studio, the Edmonton Popular Literature Project is an interdisciplinary, multi-faceted survey of the production, distribution, and consumption of popular print (both historically and currently) in Edmonton, Canada. Students will report on their research through the following websites, which will soon be online:
Women Writing and Reading
Women Writing and Reading is a local site for international research, conversation, creativity, and inquiry. It aims to engage audiences within and beyond the university in the related topics of women's writing and women's reading. Co-directed by Patricia Demers and Gary Kelly, the Program for Study of Women Writing and Reading operates through this interactive site.
Culture & the State
The CRC Studio was the organizational hub for the "Culture and the State: Past, Present, and Future" conference, which took place May 2-5 2003 at the University of Alberta. Work is currently underway on a 4-volume series of conference proceedings.
