M.A. Candidate
Second World War



B.A. (Hons), Ryerson University, 2015


Laura recently finished her B.A. at Ryerson University in the Fall of 2015, graduating with honours. Though she is broadly interested in the historical study of twentieth century conflicts, her primary research interest is the Second World War. For her undergraduate thesis, she chose to focus on the memorialization of Japanese war crimes, as well as the subsequent judicial trials, and their contentious place within the collective memory of the Second Word War. Laura is excited to continue her research on Japanese involvement in the Second World War under Dr. Emily Hill.
