My research interests in Canadian Studies have drawn me to consider areas of Canadian history prior to Confederation. My dissertation project, under the supervision of Dr. Errington and Dr. den Otter, aims to place British-Native American treaties in the context of Britain's broader treaty-making activities, through an investigation of a treaty concluded in 1730 in London, England, between seven Cherokee delegates and the Lords Commissioners of Trade and Plantations. I am also interested in the built environment of early nineteenth-century Canadian cities.
