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.
