Bio/Research

I have taught in the area of 20th-century Canadian social and gender history at McGill since 1992. I am especially interested in the intersection of values and society with individuals, the state, and place. These interests were pursued in Ideal Surrounding: Gender in a Working-Class Neighbourhood in the 1920s (1995) and At Odds: Gambling and Canadians, 1919-1969 (2003).

They are also central to my recently completed a manuscript entitled “Wisdom, Charity and Justice: Canadian Social Welfare and Jane B Wisdom, 1884-1975,” and my current project “From National Industry to Traditional Fishery: The Lobster Fishery in the Northeast,” which combines the traditions of political economy and social ecology. With Janet Guildford, I co-edited two collections that focus on women in the Atlantic region - Separate Spheres: Women’s Worlds in the 19th-Century Maritmes (1994, 1997, 2006) and Making Up the State: Women in 20th- Century Atlantic Canada (2010). In addition to teaching and research, I served as department Chair (1999-2002) and Associate Dean (Faculty of Arts, 2009-11), and am currently a member of Canada Post’s Stamp Advisory Committee and the upcoming associate editor of the Canadian Historical Review.
