About

Ph.D. Research Interests

I am primarily interested in researching the relationships among war and gender in the Canadian context during the Great War (1914-1918). Working with my supervisors Dr. Karen Dubinsky and Dr. Jane Errington, I examine what it meant to be ‘a man' in early twentieth-century English Canada and how understandings of masculinity may have influenced recruitment tactics, the subsequent movement towards conscription and the internment of ‘enemy aliens' on Canadian soil.
