  1. I am glad to see that the new blog is up and running. I am trying to check for inexpensive accommodation on campus or in a hostel. Perhaps there may be some information already available somewhere, but I have not located it directly. Also, I am wondering about shared accommodation. I live in Guelph but the drive from Guelph to downtown Toronto can easily take two hours on a day when traffic is backed up, so that would be four hours a day driving back and forth. So I would like to stay in Toronto for both the RSS and IRSA but that is a long time to pay for a regular hotel, even at reduced rates, especially now that I am retired and do not receive any kind of professional development allowance or conference allowance. I have two sessions at IRSA: 64-a and 64-b. They are based on the two recent books co-sponsored by the RSS: The Methodology of Political Economy (2015) and Rural Sociologists at Work (2016). I hope they will be easily available. Speakers in IRSA sessions 64-a and 64-b contributed to the books.
