I completed my undergraduate studies at the University of Toronto double majoring in history and East Asian studies and decided to pursue my master’s studying history at Queen’s. I am primarily interested in British history in the late medieval and early modern periods as well as the history of women during those times. Under the supervision of Dr. Daniel Woolf, I am completing my cognate essay on the manners in which powerful women during the late medieval and early modern periods were targeted and accused of practicing witchcraft and how this proved to be an effective method of removing those who were perceived to be threats to the established political hierarchy. My case studies include but are not limited to Eleanor Cobham, Jacquetta of Luxembourg, and Elizabeth Woodville.
