M.A. Histoire (spécialisation études des femmes), option COOP
Université d’Ottawa
Directrice de thèse : Dre. Ruby Heap

Diplômes :

2014 : B.A. Spécialisation Histoire, Université de Moncton.

Thèse :

« Des “ménagères conservatrices” ? : Le militantisme des femmes des Maritimes sous la Commission royale d’enquête sur la situation de la femme au Canada, 1967-1970 »

Intérêts :

Je m’intéresse à l’histoire du genre, des femmes et des groupes ethniques et culturels en milieu minoritaires au Canada. J’étudie présentement les mobilisations des femmes des provinces Maritimes à l’heure de la « deuxième vague féministe ». Je tente de comprendre le rapport entre les militantes de cette région, incluant leurs revendications, avec leurs homologues nationales tout en tenant compte de la diversité géographique, ethnique et culturelle des Maritimes.

Justin Smith

M.A. History
University of Ottawa
Thesis Supervisor : Dr. Heather Murray

Degrees:

2007: Honour’s Baccalaureate of Social Sciences, Major in Criminology, Major in History, University of Ottawa

Thesis:  

“Unnecessary Victims — Child Sex Offenders, the Death of Rehabiliation, and the Death of Privacy in Canadian Criminal Law”

Interests:

I am interested in the usefulness and application of Canadian criminal law in deterring certain behaviours and courses of action. I am also interested in the use of history in modern law and legislation, mainly via jurisprudence, and in how the law ideally functions as a past-present narrative that I would like to see more broadly throughout the discipline. More generally, I am interested in legal, medical, and intellectual history, and in the relationship between historical and social scientific bodies of knowledge.

Conferences:

“Necropolitics — Absolute Power Reconsidered”, Pierre Savard Conference, University of Ottawa, 25 April 2015.

“Pedophiles, Necropolitics, and the Protection of Children”, International Graduate Historical Studies Conference, Central Michigan University, 27 March 2015.

M.A. History, thesis with Co-op
University of Ottawa
Thesis Supervisor: Dr. Richard Connors

Degrees:

2014 : B.A. Joint Honours History and Political Science.

Thesis:

“The Diseases and Welfare of British Sailors during the Seven Years’ War”

Interests:

My academic focus centres on social histories during the British Imperial period, particularly in a colonial context. I am also interested in the historiographical transition from diplomatic and political narratives to social narratives within the literature. Influenced by N.A.M. Rodgers and Erica Charters, my current work focuses on how not only did disease and distemper influence naval engagement and manoeuvres but also how the common sailor lived, worked and died in 18th-century conditions on a British warship.
