Canadian History



B.A. (Honours) Mount Royal University 2019


I have recently graduated from Mount Royal University with a B.A. Honours in History and a minor in Art History. During my undergraduate degree, I became interested in Canadian, the body, gender, and dance history. For my thesis, I plan to research the relationship between ballet and normative narratives of race, gender, and sexual identity during the Cold War in Canada. I will be completing my research under the supervision of Dr. Karen Dubinsky.
