Phillip Vannini and Jonathan Taggart publish spread in Yukon, North of Ordinary

School of Communication and Culture Prof. Phillip Vannini and MA in Intercultural and International Communication student Jonathan Taggart have published an article and photos in the recent issue of Yukon, North of Ordinary. You can view a PDF of the spread here, or read the story on our website. An excerpt: "Living off-grid is not like being stuck in an endless blackout. Contrary to what you might think, those living offgrid have their houses fully lit, their food refrigerated, and their clothes kept clean by efficient washing machines, just like you and me. In fact, some of their homes are so intelligently designed that renewable sources of energy allow them to save money and reduce their carbon footprint. Other dwellings may be rougher around the edges, but they happen to be tucked away in spots so hauntingly stunning to make you want to survive without a toaster or a blow-dryer."
