During her leave, Dr. Aimee Vieira conducted site visits to rural amenity communities in Quebec, New Hampshire, Maine, and Vermont, for data collection on: property ownership; demographic change; commercial business operations and signage; and economic development activities. These site visits augmented data secured from the Census Bureau, Statistics Canada, various public records, as well as digital and print media. With the wealth of data amassed, she was able to conduct analyses of qualitative visual data and quantitative data, as well as explore mapping techniques to interrogate the information collected, for a subset of the U.S.-based study sites. As a result of her work while on leave, Dr. Vieira has chapters forthcoming in two edited volumes. She also completed a book review for Rural Sociology, presented multiple research-in-progress papers at professional meetings, has several articles under development for various journals, and has been approached by a publisher for a possible monograph.
