…I attend Carleton University and am currently in my fourth year of a combined major in history and classics. I have also taken courses on ancient philosophy and am particularly interested in stoicism. Post-undergrad I hope to pursue a masters in library and archival studies or public history….

I have been interested in history for as long as I can remember and always knew it would be something I wanted to pursue. I am in my fourth year of an undergraduate combined major of history and classics with a minor in philosophy.  My research interests cover a large array of topics. If I were to try to narrow it down to a handful of key points of interest, I would have to say the conscription debates in Canada during World War One, ancient Greek pottery, and stoicism are three areas of research I thoroughly enjoy. As you can tell, these subjects are all vastly different from one another.  In an ideal world, I wish to pursue a masters degree in public history or library and archival studies. I am currently taking a course on medieval manuscripts and while it differs quite substantially from each of my research interests, I enjoy learning new things. I saw this course as the perfect opportunity to do so. I look forward to developing an understanding of part of the medieval world through my manuscript as well as opening it up to a larger public that otherwise would not have access to it. I often spend the majority of my days on campus buried in course material. When I am not working on assignments, I can be found at work at the Carleton library, reading a book, or on a run.

MemberMariana Strassacapa Ou

I am a converted Londoner, originally from Brazil. After working a few years in Sao Paulo as an architect and graphic designer, I came to the UK to pursue a master’s in Library Science. Having received my degree from City, University of London, I am currently working with cataloguing and digitisation of special items, such as pamphlets and posters, from the incredible archives of the Marx Memorial Library. I love all aspects of research work. My main interests at the moment: archive studies, library and archive history, digital archives, Spanish civil war. History, social history, and philosophy are passions that leave traces on everything I write and do. I am currently reading: a history of lighthouses, a global history of work, and a collection of British classic ghost stories
