- About Me
I am a PhD Candidate at the University of Guelph. My dissertation research explores the relationship between women and the government over food control in Canada during the First World War.
My fields of interest include Canadian History, Women’s and Gender History, Food History, Settler Colonialism, Rural and Agricultural History, Public History, Consumer History, Religious History, and Museums and Living History Sites.
My MA in History was completed at the University of Calgary in 2016 on the topic of Public Dining in Western Canada. I also completed my Honours Thesis at the University of Calgary on urban and rural experiences of death and dying in Alberta.
I have experience working in museums as an interpreter and draw upon my work in historic foodways programming to add an experiential element to my research. I completed my BA(Hons) in History with a minor in Museum and Heritage Studies and a Co-op Designation.
I can be found on LinkedIn.
I write a food history blog: Potatoes, Rhubarb, and Ox.
