    Gagnant du prix du livre académique du Nouveau-Brunswick

    Bien que le comité ait été impressionné par la qualité de tous les ouvrages soumis pour le Prix du livre académique du Nouveau-Brunswick, The Miramichi Fire: A History, par Alan MacEachern (McGill-Queen’s University Press, 2020) s’est mérité le prix cette année. La recherche menée par MacEachern, en plus d’explorer en profondeur l’histoire, l’économie et la tradition provinciale, permet une meilleure compréhension des questions environnementales, climatiques, et hydrologiques, et sur la manière dont de telles conflagrations s’amorcent et se propagent; comment elles transforment les écosystèmes, les tendances de l’emploi, et la population; et la manière dont on s’en souvient dans l’imagination populaire. Ainsi, ce livre fournit une importante contribution à notre compréhension de la culture de dépendance aux ressources naturelles du Nouveau-Brunswick, maintenant comme par le passé. L’ouvrage bénéficie d’une recherche soignée et il est écrit dans un style à la fois académique et parfois ludique dans la manière dont les faits et les récits qui ont émergés de cet événement important de l’histoire de la province sont présentés.

    New Brunswick Scholarly Book Award Winner

    While the committee was impressed with the quality of books submitted for the New Brunswick Scholarly Book Award, Alan MacEachern’s The Miramichi Fire: A History (McGill-Queen’s University Press, 2020) was selected as this year’s winner. Not only does MacEachern’s comprehensive archival research delve deeply into provincial history, economics, and lore, but it also brings environmental, climatic, and hydrological understandings to bear on how such conflagrations start and spread; how they change ecosystems, work patterns, and populations; and how they are remembered in the popular imagination. As such, the book makes important contributions to our understanding of New Brunswick’s resource-dependent culture, both past and present. The book is thoroughly researched and written in a style that is scholarly and at times playful in its presentation of the facts and stories that have accompanied this momentous event in provincial history.
