This will be based on location in Mississauga, Toronto
Lower Base Line E (area of study is Ninth Line and Trafalgar)
I can add pictures in the future but now refer to google maps/google earth.
This is a single road with no light poles. not many speed limits. animal crossing. at night accidents take place by having the wildlife animal come out of nowhere. The aim is to put street lights. I can provide more details and reference pictures in the future.
The short essay should be 1000-1200 words maximum (typed, 12-pt font, double-spaced) exclusive of photos, maps and other illustrations. The evaluation will be based on: evidence of engagement with the ideas and concepts of political ecology and landscape (including readings, lectures, and student presentations); primary and secondary source research; compelling analysis and synthesis; evidence of critical thinking; good organization of ideas; and overall quality of writing (including APA referencing). [Note: APA style uses (author, date) in-text reference for paraphrased material and (author, date: page) for cited material (in quotation marks). Footnotes are reserved for additional explanatory information. All references are compiled into a complete bibliography at the end the paper.]
Books and reports on your local landscape are useful to consult. So are the local library, the local archives, and perhaps the Ontario Archives. If it proves impossible to visit these repositories, try their websites for sources and photos. Note historical photos at OLDTO: Mapping historical photos at https://oldto.sidewalklabs.com/. Check out air photographs that cover different points in time at City of Toronto, Air photographs at https://www.toronto.ca/city-government/accountability-operations-customer-service/access-city-information-or-records/city-of-toronto-archives/whats-online/maps/aerial-photographs/aerial-photographs-1947/). Check out, too, the landscape for lost rivers and water bodies at Lost Rivers at http://lostrivers.ca/disappearing.html. When consulting these sources, do you have the possibility to put together repeat photography sequences? You may want to consult the free app Driftscape to explore local histories. The City of Toronto also has a useful website called StrollTO that contains self-guided neighbourhood tours at https://www.toronto.ca/explore-enjoy/festivals-events/showloveto/strollto/. Stefan Kipfer provides some inspiration in The Naked City: Traversing Toronto in pandemic times (Toronto: Socialist Project, 2020) at https://socialistproject.ca/content/uploads/2020/07/naked-city.pdf. John Warkentin’s Creating Memory: A guide to outdoor public sculpture in Toronto (Toronto; Becker Associates, 2010) could also be of some use. When reviewing these sources, consider what the names of places and institutions tell you about the landscape.
I’ve attached some readings for the paper.
Need a communicative writer.
