Global Game, Local Arena Restructuring in Corner Brook, Newfoundland by Glen Norcliffe (Author)

Global Game, Local Arena Restructuring in Corner Brook, Newfoundland

Price: CDN$27.95
Book Description

In Global Game, Local Arena, geographer Glen Norcliffe explores how powerful forces of global economic integration have played out in Corner Brook and interprets the town’s creation as a company town in the colonial era, its slow transformation into a public municipality, and the phase of vigorous restructuring launched in 1984 to raise the paper mill’s performance in response to increased global competition. Restructuring introduced lean production, and in turn this impacted on workers’ families, and on the larger community. Through extensive interviews with former and present mill workers and their families, and by examining written records - newspaper accounts, legislative acts, earlier published sources - the author sheds valuable light on how the process of globalization has played out in one small but typical local arena. Since 1984 Corner Brook has experienced large-scale out-migration of younger adults, and a rapid aging of the population. Community resistance to this process has been mostly subtle, taking the form of a reconnection to the population’s local roots in outports and the woods.

Glen Norcliffe is a Professor of Geography at York University in Toronto. His research has recently focused on industrial restructuring, modernity, and the global economy. He was awarded the Canadian Association of Geographers’ Award for Scholarly Distinction in 2003.
