Message from Dr. Kelly Vodden, associate vice-president research and graduate studies

It is always a pleasure to learn about the research happening right here at Grenfell. I have the honour of being able to do so every day. So much is happening at this campus and our team here at the Office of Research and Graduate Studies wants to make sure we help share news about your projects and accomplishments across Newfoundland and Labrador and beyond. This newsletter is designed to do just that, and to help connect people with common research-related interests on and off-campus.

The newsletter also provides a vehicle for the Office of Research and Graduate Studies to update readers on some of our own initiatives. Grenfell’s Research and Engagement offices are now located on the fourth floor of the Forest Centre, facilitating our collective efforts to foster research and collaboration at Grenfell. Lan Ma remains in AS320 and is available to answer your questions or direct you to those who can.

I would once again like to thank my fellow members of the Grenfell Campus Research Committee for their invaluable support and advice to the Research and Graduate Studies Office regarding strategic planning, planning of events and activities, developing procedures and application reviews for the Vice-President’s (Grenfell Campus) Research Fund, and in their role as liaisons between the member representatives’ schools, Library Council, and the Office of Research and Graduate Studies. Many thanks to Dr. Daniel Nadolny and Dr. Garrett Richards as well for continuing to organize Grenfell’s Friday FLIRT talks and to all of the presenters who have contributed to this important venue for research-related discussions.

A big thank you to the members of the Graduate Studies Working Group as well. Exciting new developments continue in graduate studies. The MFA Program received final approval from Senate in March 2018 and our first MFA students will begin their programs in the spring of 2019. Proposals for the master of management, master of applied geomatics, and PhD in sustainability science continue to move forward, while our master of boreal ecosystem and agricultural sciences and Master of Arts in environmental policy saw our largest group of students to date graduate at this fall’s convocation. The success of our students is aided by our senior secretary, Ms. Nadia Simmons, who recently received the Vice president’s Staff Service Award in recognition of her extraordinary dedication to our graduate students.

Our undergraduate students are gaining recognition for their research as well – this summer eight Grenfell students received undergraduate student summer research awards from The Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC)! Students worked with NSERC-funded professors for 16 weeks, conducting research ranging from scavenging behavior following bird mortalities resulting from collisions with windows to experimental particle physics.

Staff of the Research and Graduate Studies Office together with the committees noted above are nearing completion of a strategic plan for the office, including actionable objectives and key indicators. The plan will in turn contribute to Grenfell-wide strategic planning efforts. Goals include continued support for established graduate programs and for those currently under development. In addition, the plan will outline steps to increase scholarly activities. One of the ways we seek to do this is by ensuring information sessions and professional development opportunities offered at the St. John’s Campus are made available here through videoconferencing. Additionally, we offer our own information sessions on a variety of topics. Since the 2018-2019 academic year began, we have offered sessions covering topics such as Researcher Portal training, research finance, and a SSHRC information session for Insight development grants geared towards fine arts and research creation.

We are pleased to offer a number of events in the coming months. Our senior university librarian will be connect with schools to gauge interest in a seminar on ORCID and other tools to enhance research visibility. In addition, in February (Date TBD) Pamela Gill, who has been working with our office two days a week, will offer a communications/research dissemination session. Additional sessions on research funding opportunities are also planned.

We hope this newsletter provides insight into the vibrant research landscape at Grenfell Campus. Please do not hesitate to contact the office, or your school representatives on the Research or Graduate Studies Committees (see members listed below) with your ideas or feedback, and continue to let us know about your inspiring research activities and accomplishments so that we can share them with others. We invite you to join us for a coffee break and newsletter launch on Thursday, Nov. 29, 10-11a.m. at the Fine Arts Atrium. Hope to see you there!

Western Regional School of Nursing

Graduating more than 1,800 nurses since its first graduating class, the Western Regional School of Nursing has become a vital center for health care in Newfoundland and Labrador, fostering both new talent and research.

  • Ethical conflict can have detrimental effects on one’s emotional and physical health; conflict can generate feelings of stress and anxiety, compromise relationships, and lead to fragmented care that can jeopardize client safety and well-being. Nurse Educator Anne Wadhwa conducted an exploratory study entitled Ethical Conflicts in Community Health Care: A Qualitative Study of Individual and Family Experiences to increase understanding of the types of ethical conflicts encountered by community health care recipients and their family members. This research study, conducted during her nursing graduate studies under the supervision of Dr. Caroline Porr, was part of a larger study at Memorial University that explored the ethical conflicts of nurses, physicians, clients, and family members; conflict management strategies; and the structure, function, and effectiveness of community ethics committees and services. Wadhwa found that ethical conflicts experienced by individuals and families involved issues related respect and dignity, privacy, and accessibility to care.



  • Nursing Instructor Nicole Curtis has been researching literature on the facilitators and barriers that affect the ability of nurses to pursue graduate studies as part of their own graduate studies at Athabasca University. Continuing education is a core component of the maintenance of best practices in nursing as well as to evidence-based practice and education, particularly as new technologies become increasingly important in healthcare. However, while graduate degrees are becoming increasingly vital to nursing practice and education in Canada, only a slim majority of Canadian nurses overall have such degrees and as few as five percent of ARNNL-member practicing nurses in our province hold a Master’s of Nursing. Further, there are concerns that this could worsen the impact of future shortages of nurses within the healthcare system. So far general barriers to continuing education identified in the available literature include financial and budgetary constraints, time constraints, family responsibilities, and staff shortages. It is hoped that this research will eventually help identify what barriers and facilitators exist to graduate-level education specifically.



  • Miranda A. Bennett, a student in the Bachelor of Nursing Program at the Western Regional School of Nursing, examined issues of body image experienced during the postpartum period as part of a class paper. Exploring research on the subject, Miranda found that women were more likely to experience issues related to body image perception in the postpartum period than during pregnancy. Potential ramifications of these issues included eating disorders, concerns around breastfeeding, and increased risk of postpartum depression. These issues were also noted as important for better understanding how nursing education and ethics relate when nurses interact with those potentially experiencing such symptoms; drawing upon information from the Code of Ethics for Registered Nurses of the Canadian Nurses Association. Further, nursing practice tools that could be used to help address negative body image perceptions were explored, such as the use of breastfeeding education and face to face meetings between nurses and clients in the postpartum period.



School of Science and the Environment

Bringing graduate and undergraduate students and researchers together from the natural and social sciences, the School of Science & the Environment offers programs in environmental policy, boreal ecosystems and agricultural sciences, computational mathematics, environmental science, general science, physics, environmental studies, and sustainable resource management.

  • Dr. Pierre-Michel Rouleau, an Associate-Professor of Physics at Grenfell, has recently been studying rare-earthquake physics in the Gulf of Maine and Bay of Fundy system. Dr. Rouleau has focussed on how these earthquakes can be induced in those regions where the intense ocean tides periodically load the sea bottom. Of particular interest to this research is any potential seismic activity near the Point Lepreau Nuclear Generating Station located in Maces Bay, New Brunswick. The station is a 660-megawatt unit and was the first commercially operational CANDU-6 (Canada Deuterium Uranium) reactor. This research was also presented in June 2018 at a session entitled CGU-Solid Earth: Induced Seismicity in Canada and the USA, in Niagara Falls. The session was part of a larger joint meeting of the Canadian Soil Science Society, Canadian Geophysical Union, Eastern Section of the Seismological Society of America, Canadian Society for Agricultural and Forest Meteorology, and Computational Infrastructure in Geodynamics.



  • Dr. Rebecca Milley, a Professor of Computational Mathematics at Grenfell, co-organized a special session of the Canadian Mathematics Society (CMS) Summer Meeting at the University of New Brunswick. The session  was co-organized by  Dr. Svenja Huntemann and Dr. Neil McKay of Mount Allison University, and was one of about 20 scientific sessions running in parallel during the conference. The session topic was Combinatorial Game Theory, a branch of mathematics that studies algebraic properties of pure strategy games like chess and checkers: games with two players, perfect information, and no luck. The session consisted of one day for presentations and one for working on open problems in the area. Dr. Milley presented a talk, “Domineering under misere play,” featuring research completed with Grenfell computational mathematics graduate Courtney Weir during her summer research position in 2017. “Misere play means the player who takes the last move loses the game,” said Dr. Milley. “This type of play has remarkably less mathematical structure than normal play, where the player who moves last wins.” Dr. Milley and Ms. Weir studied a game called “Domineering” under misere play, finding new examples of algebraic structure among game positions. This work is part of Dr. Milley’s research program, funded by an NSERC Discovery Grant.



  • Dr. Adrian Unc, a Professor of Boreal Ecosystems and Agricultural Sciences at Grenfell Campus, has been working on two separate projects; one studying Recirculating Aquaculture Systems (RAS) solids produced by NL’s fish hatchery industry and one modelling algae-bacteria systems in municipal wastewaters. About 700-800 metric tons of RAS solids are produced each year by the fish hatchery industry and Dr. Unc’s work explores how this waste could be used on farmland, to add value to farmers while reducing disposal fees. Meanwhile, Dr. Unc is also modelling algal growth with the hope of improving best practices for biofuel algae production with municipal wastewater. Biofuel produced in this way could improve the economic sustainability of wastewater treatment, while also providing a sustainable energy source.



  • Sarah Coombs, a graduate from the Environmental Science Program Chemistry Stream, worked with Dr. Chen Liu in winter 2018 to detect arsenic in drinking water at the maximum contaminant level of 0.01 ppm. The reliable detection of arsenic at such a low level is difficult, especially when carried out directly in the dynamic environment of the liquid phase of arsenic. The method is based on the phenomenon of surface enhanced Raman scattering using metallic nanoparticles to enhance the arsenic signals. In this project, several factors were explored in order to investigate their effectiveness in enhancing the arsenic signals in the liquid phase in a reproducible manner. Other spectroscopic methods were also used to facilitate our understanding of the nanoparticle behavior in the liquid phase. The results from this project will be very valuable in future research on the quantitative detection of the amount of arsenic in water.


School of Arts and Social Sciences

Driving curiosity and applied research in Newfoundland and Labrador the School of Arts and Social Science offers numerous programs in humanities, social/cultural studies, historical studies, English, business, and psychology.

  • Ibrahim Berrada, a Grenfell Campus Sociology Lecturer, is exploring Canadian attitudes toward the United States such as American resentment, as well as hockey’s importance in Canada, by examining bathroom habits and water consumption of Canadians during the 2010 Olympic Men’s Hockey Final in Vancouver. The Final saw Canada and the United States face off against each other and drew 16.6 Million viewers, with almost 26.5 million people in Canada watching at least part of it. This led to massive spikes in water consumption, straining water facilities in multiple major Canadian cities (with the exception of St. John’s) during the break-periods of the game. Energy usage also spiked just prior to the game. While the use of sports events as a means of examining questions around social cohesion, religious affinities, and national identity is common, it is challenging to find strictly quantitative data, beyond viewership statistics and ticket sales, that lends itself to this type of analysis, as water and energy usage do in this case.



  • When people think of the work of L. M. Montgomery they often think of her novels depicting rural life, such as Anne of Green Gables, and the various subsequent TV shows based on them. Dr. Holly Pike, of Grenfell’s English Program, has been researching Montgomery’s career as a freelance writer for North American magazines prior to the publication of Anne of Green Gables. Over ten years, during this period, Montgomery published hundreds of poems and approximately five hundred short stories, some of which were subsequently reused in her novels. Dr. Pike explored several of these short stories that featured the lives of young women, often students and journalists, living in urban boarding houses. Of particular interest to the research was how these stories addressed issues of community and intergenerational learning between older and younger women living in the houses. This work was presented as part of an ACCUTE Sessions panel on the urban L. M. Montgomery this past summer and Montgomery’s ‘pre-Anne’ career will be discussed as part of one of Dr. Pike’s upcoming courses (ENGL 4832).



  • As part of his PhD from the University of OttawaDr. Bradley Harding, a Grenfell Professor of Psychology, set out to determine the exact mechanism we use to differentiate between objects. Human beings are remarkably quick at determining when two objects are the same or different but the specifics of how our minds make such distinctions so quickly are unknown. This research focusses on presenting participants with a series of tasks where only singular variables are changed. For instance, keeping the differentness between objects constant and only varying sameness. The problem is that people do not process information at the same rate, so Dr. Harding developed tasks that present gradual changes to research participants rather than single ‘shots’ of information. In these gradual tasks, participants do not need to see all of the information about the objects being presented in order to determine differentness and sameness, ‘just as when we read sentenecs but do not need to read all a word’s letters to tell its identity.’



  • Tim Collier conducted research for independent project in Social-Cultural Studies during the winter semester of 2018 which explored the ways in which the material and ideological realities of our contemporary time affect our perceptions of death. This project involved qualitative fieldwork, including nine in-depth interviews, conducted in the small rural community of Mainland on the Port au Port Peninsula, Newfoundland. The project was designed to test the hypothesis that death becomes more socially fearful when it is under the control of rationalised medicalization. The research found that as the process of death is taken out of the home, and the dying are increasingly moved into institutions like the hospital, there is a corresponding increase in social anxieties surrounding death. Further, it found that structural social factors conspire to necessitate the institutionalisation of the dead and dying; as Western society becomes more individualistic we are more likely than ever to experience an institutionalised death.



School of Fine Arts

Offering programs in theatre and visual arts, and courses in Visual Culture/Art History, the School of Fine Arts is a cornerstone of artistic life and cutting-edge research, scholarly and creative activity in Newfoundland and Labrador, and has built a name for itself both nationally and internationally.

  • Anna House, a Visual Arts Instructor at Grenfell, started researching differences between perceived and physical environmental change this summer near Mistaken Point and throughout the coastline of Newfoundland’s Avalon Peninsula. A world heritage site and ecological reserve, Mistaken Point contains fossils of some of the first complex life forms on the planet dating back 580 million years. She was interested in analyzing the perceptions of the ‘truth of nature’ in the region and their relation to romantic narratives of tourism an ecological preservation; the differences between the way the area is depicted to visitors and the biophysical changes taking place along the coast. This exploration further led to a more specific exploration of tourism goods and other products, such as preserved foods, and their cultural and environmental significance. The research then resulted in a series of artworks depicting satirical products and labels with messages such as ‘we suggest apathy to the facts’ accompanying them.



  • Dr. Gerard Curtis, Professor of Art History and Visual Culture, is working on a joint project with two British-Council sponsored artists and fellow collaborators, who were able to hike and tour the West Coast of Newfoundland with him during May’s snowstorms. That same month he participated in a creative work with one of these artists, Jan Platun; his visage, hands, and voice, being writ-large in projections in the Tate Modern, London. Additionally, Dr. Curtis worked on the new MFA program at Grenfell, undertook activist-educational work for the NL Federation of Labour, is developing an article on the history of Grenfell’s BFA program for The Rooms, and presented on the social-political interrelationship of graffiti and mural art to cultural tourism at the Global Mural Conference. Further, researching maritime art for a book, he visited Grate’s Cove and Winterton’s Boat Museum, documenting the morphology of boat design, hydrodynamics, and aesthetics. For the same book he conducted sketching tours at L’Anse aux Meadows and St. Pierre/Miquelon; there salvaged portholes in sarcophaguses, a seafaring oceanic window into death, aided in understanding how maritime designs impact land-based architecture.



  • Louise Gauthier, an Instructor in Grenfell Campus’ Theatre Program, spent this summer working to further develop Corner Brook’s CBNuit arts festival, along with a team of other volunteers. This involved research into other festivals in Canada, and community festivals in the United States, as well as the larger history of Nuit Blanche itself. Nuit Blanche refers to a series of ‘sleepless night’ city arts festivals, with a history dating back to 2001. Louise’s exploration of these subjects focussed, among other aspects, on the social media and website strategies other festivals had used to help drive participation, attendance, and general interest. One of the key lessons learned was that less can be more. For example, giving people too much information on the sort of art they may encounter reduces the mystery around the event, while giving just the right amount of information appeals to their curiosity.



  • Charlotte May Hobden was in the third year of her BFA when she began her research on the perception of colour, an interest stimulated by Prof. D’Arcy Wilson‘s Extended Sight course at the Bonne Bay Marine Station in Gros Morne National Park. While there, Charlotte was painting the landscape en plein air. This painting was initially used in a photographic series exploring the changing formal and contextual elements that were relative to the painting’s environment. Developing her interests in colour through a scientific lens, Charlotte collaborated with Pierre Garigue, a Geographical Information Systems Specialist. Using LANDSAT8 Imagery, they expanded Charlotte’s project for the SpaceUp exhibition at Grenfell Campus in February of 2018. Seeing the Unseen used the perspectives of the human eye and infrared satellite imagery of Bombay to create a diptych that was displayed under a changing loop of coloured LED lights as a means to demonstrate our perceptual filter.
