Bio/Research

Professor Brouwer has been teaching at King’s since 1993. Her courses have included a Canadian survey, Canadian women’s and social history, and the Family in the North Atlantic World since 1500. Her research has dealt with women and religion and particularly with Protestant women’s roles as teachers and doctors in the missionary enterprise in colonial Asia and Africa. Her work in progress, “When Missions Became Development,” deals with transitions in the mainstream Protestant churches in the 1960s and ‘70s and with the emergence of CUSO, a vibrant, student-based secular development organization originally called Canadian University Service Overseas. Making use of numerous interviews as well as archival research, Professor Brouwer hopes to complete a book on CUSO by 2011, the fiftieth anniversary of its founding.
