Corey Slumkoski


Corey's primary research interest lies in the intersection of regionalism, underdevelopment, and identity, with a secondary focus on the digital humanities. His recently published book, Inventing Atlantic Canada: Regionalism and the Maritime Reaction to Newfoundland's Entry into Canadian Confederation, considers how Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and Prince Edward Island attempted to use the addition of a new "Atlantic" province to further regional development. His work has also appeared in The Island Magazine, Acadiensis, The Journal of New Brunswick Studies, Computers and the Humanities Working Papers, and Digital Studies. In addition, he has been involved in the development of a number of online history projects such as the Atlantic Canada Portal and the Atlantic Canada Virtual Archives, and he has spoken about digital history in Atlantic Canada to the SSHRC President and Council.
