I received my MA (1981) and PhD (1988) from the University of Guelph in Social History. I have taught as Contract Teaching Faculty (CTF) on Laurier's Waterloo and the Brantford campuses for more than fifteen years.
I have offered courses covering topics such as:
My research interests include law and social justice issues as well as commemoration and public history. Work in progress: “Redefining Family in the Wake of Industrialization: Late Victorian Guelph, Ontario”, in the series Family and Childhood in Canada, Cynthia Comacchio, series ed., Waterloo: Wilfrid Laurier University Press.
My connections in the heritage community in Waterloo Region and Wellington County have facilitated experiential learning placements in museums and archives for public history courses. As a member of the editorial board of the Guelph Historical Society journal Historic Guelph, The Royal City, I have been able to vet promising local history and public research papers by Laurier students for publication in the journal.
