PhD candidate Erin Gallagher-Cohoon received honourable mention for the Osgoode Society's R. Roy McMurtry Fellowship in Legal History for her dissertation project on the history of queer families in Canada.
Created in honour of the Hon. R. Roy McMurtry, Chief Justice of Ontario, the one-year fellowship supports graduate students conducting research on a topic related to Canadian legal history.
Erin's doctoral thesis questions the cultural and legal constructions of 'family' and 'parenthood' in the Canadian context. She is completing her dissertation under the direction of Dr. Karen Dubinsky.
