Canadian history, European history
BA (History) Memorial University
MA (History) Memorial University
My areas of research include Canadian and European history, as well as modern intellectual history. Above all, I study the influence of nationalism on the past. At Memorial University, my MA thesis covered the rise of revanchist nationalism in Post-WW I Hungary and its effect on foreign policy under the regime of Admiral Miklós Horthy. I will soon begin work on a thesis covering how Anglophone and Francophone historians in Canada portrayed themselves and each other in the race to develop a definitive account of the history of the country after the Second World War. Ian McKay will be supervising this project.
I taught English as a second language in private companies for over one year.
