Diploma, Applied Museum Studies, Algonquin College (2014-2017)

Undergraduate student at Carleton University pursuing a B.A. Honours in History. My academic and professional interests are wide-ranging, but primarily centre on queer history, public history, collections management, and heritage conservation. I am invested in finding creative, meaningful ways to foster engagement with history and connecting communities with the past, whether that’s in a formal or informal learning environment. My hobbies include reading, listening to podcasts, and playing games (tabletop and video), and I have an immense soft spot for speculative fiction (fantasy, science fiction, horror, etc). I love, particularly, games and fiction that play with expectations and do interesting things with the established tropes of their genres. On weekends, I can typically be found holed up underground with my fellow mole people at the Diefenbunker, Canada’s Cold War Museum, in Carp, ON.

…B.A. (Honours). Department of History. Carleton University, (2014-Current)….

I am in the final year of my Bachelor of Arts with honours at Carleton University. My major is in history and I have a minor in Medieval and Early Modern Studies as well as Greek and Roman Studies. My main area of interest, as well as the subject of my undergraduate honours thesis, is Early Medieval Europe. More specifically, the social, political, and religious relationships during the 6th century in Frankish Gaul – mainly through the writings of Gregor of Tours. I am currently studying the language of Old Norse/Icelandic and the associated literature, particularly the writings of Snorri Sturluson. I particularly enjoy conversion history and the comparison of pre-Christian Scandinavia to western Christian culture.

DepositHIST3812 Winter 2018 Critical Digital Making

Syllabus for HIST3812, Winter 2018 at Carleton University, Department of History, on ‘Critical Digital Making’. “What happens to history as it gets digitized? That is, what does history look like, what happens to our materials, and the stories we tell or the questions we ask, as we abstract further and further away from ‘In Real Life’? What does ‘digital history’ really mean? How will we explore this question? You will choose a real world object/building/site here in Ottawa that you can access and: progressively abstract it away from the real world with a series of technologies from photogrammetry to augmented reality all the while attending lectures to learn the context of what we’re doing and why, annotating the readings collaboratively on the open web as you keep open notebooks reflecting on this progression so that you can build a digital experience of your understanding of your results for a public reveal to be held on campus at the end of term.
