Modern French Cultural History
B.A. (Hons), Liberal Arts College, Concordia University, 2010
Having been initiated into the liberal arts in CEGEP, I pursued this line of study at the Liberal Arts College of Concordia University and completed my BA in Western Society and Culture. My Honours thesis was, briefly, an analysis of the dissemination and reception of Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec's posters in Belle Époque Paris. Not being quite ready to embark upon graduate studies following my BA, since then I worked and travelled around Canada, the US and France.
Now, back at school, I intend to focus my research on the women performers found within Toulouse-Lautrec's posters, amongst others, in order to determine their own agency in the popularization and commercialization of Montmartre around the turn of the 20th century. I will be working under the supervision of Dr. Mah.
I am also looking forward to TA-ing HIST 216 Civil War and Reconstruction with Dr. Currarino and HIST 274 Cultural History of Modern France with Dr. Mah.
