The Atlas was officially unveiled on May 30 to a full room in a lunch session as part of the Canadian Association of Geographers (CAG) 2012 Annual Meeting, which itself was part of the larger 2012 Congress of the Social Sciences and Humanities. After a quick run-through presentation of the website by Markus Moos, a good round of discussion followed among the scholars in attendance.
Following the aim of providing a platform through which conversations about suburbanism can occur in an accessible and contemporary manner, the Atlas gained some buzz among the Twitter crowd:
From all of us with the Atlas of Suburbanisms: thank you for the support, and we hope you’ll join us as we keep the conversation going.
