Way back in February, the Communication and Culture graduate program at the University of Calgary rendezvoused with its counterpart from Simon Fraser University for a retreat at Nelson, BC. M presented his research on environmental infomediaries and their effect on consumer purchase decisions. I came along for the ride, and my Mom came to spend the weekend with us as well.
Nelson’s claim to fame is the filming location of Roxanne, an film from the 1980’s starring Steve Martin. We spent an afternoon driving around admiring the architecture.
