The Atlantic Node distributes an events listing every second Wednesday. Items include local, national, and international events, invitations to publish, and job opportunities.

The Atlantic Node is managed by a team of academics from the University of King's College and Dalhousie University.
Cindy Stelmackowich (PhD Binghampton University, SUNY, in Art History and Theory, 2010)
Cindy’s work focuses on the relation between science, knowledge and representation. Her dissertation was an inter-disciplinary examination of 19th-century anatomical atlases. Current research focuses on the function of anatomical and pathological illustration in the emerging medical profession, medical teaching institutions, and book publishing industry. This study analyzes the visual rhetoric of anatomical imagery and how illustrations and new types of scientific publications were central to the construction of scientific knowledge. Cindy’s curatorial and science museum work also demonstrates an expertise in scientific instruments, anatomical collections and medical artifacts.
Paul Armstrong, Department of Sociology and Social Anthropology, Dalhousie University
Paul Armstrong is a doctoral student in sociology at Dalhousie, with research interests in the development of the social sciences. Current work focuses on the interwar period and the theoretical and methodological debates which paved the way for the dominance of analytical and formal approaches in the postwar period. His broader interests are focused on the relation between religion and civil society. This has led to his involvement in a large-scale project about the Irish Catholic community in nineteenth century Halifax. He has done work in economic development and policy analysis.
Megan Dean, Department of Philosophy, University of Alberta
Megan has recently completed her Master's degree at the University of Alberta in Edmonton. Her thesis elaborated a Foucauldian account of experience to think through the potentially transformative effects of feminist critiques of embodiment on experiences of bodies. Her academic interests include theories of embodiment, feminist theory, animal ethics, and the philosophy of science.
