Welcome to my home page. I have been at Simon Fraser since 1976, making my way here via the University of Newcastle Upon Tyne (BA, 1968), University of Alberta (MA, 1970), the University of Washington (PhD 1973) and Memorial University of Newfoundland where I taught for three years. I spent a year at the University of Sheffield while on sabbatical (1980-81) and I have been a Visiting Professor at the University of Cologne (summers of ’95 and 2000) and the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (May, 2001). In 1999 I received the Award for Scholarly Distinction from the Canadian Association of Geographers. Between 1985 and between 2008 - 2011 1990 I chaired the Geography Department. And between 2006-2008 inclusive I was Editor of The Canadian Geographer.
On field work in Japan:
I am an economic geographer with multi-faceted interests in the relationships between institutions, industrial organization, location and regional development. Much of my work has focused on the on the evolutionary geographies of firms, and on the development of resource peripheries. Empirically, the dominant focus of my research has been to understand the location dynamics of BC’s forest economy from 1950 to the present. I also have interests in Japanese production systems and Japanese FDI in Asia, and environmental economic geography.
My undergraduate teaching focuses on:
Economic Geography (Geography 221)
Industrial Location (Geography 323)
Industrial Change and Local Development (Geography 426)
International Field Study (Geography 497)
My text book, co-authored with Jerry Patchell, Economic Geography: An Institutional Approach, Toronto: reveals how I teach GEOG 221.
I developed a text book for GEOG 323, The Dynamics of Industrial Location: The Factory, The Firm and the Production System, originally published by John Wiley and sons, Chichester in 1997. This book is no longer published by Wiley but I have the copyright and the book can be accessed, free of charge, at:
The Dynamics of Industrial Location: The Firm, the Factory and the Production System (see below)
My graduate courses provide advanced reading and discussion of industrial location dynamics, institutional economic geography, and regional development.
