Great News from Student Affiliates


We have some great news to share with the COHDS community. A number of our student affiliates recently defended their MA and PhD theses on oral history. These include the following (all of these are/or will soon be available online via Concordia's Spectrum platform):

> Alan Wong, PhD. Individualized Programme, “Between Rage and Love: Disidentifications Among Racialized, Ethnicized, and Colonized Allosexual Activists in Montreal."

> Samah Affan, MA History, "Ethical Gestures: Articulations of Black Life in Montreal’s 1960s."

> Kimberley Moore, MA History, "Subjective Listening: Methodological and Interpretative Challenges and Opportunities in Constructing an Online Oral History Database.” 

> Emily MacLeod, 2013, History MA. “Revisiting Old Town: Examining the Post-Occupational History of the Fortress of Louisbourg.” 

Others have just learned that they have been awarded prestigious SSHRC and FQRSC scholarships for their projects. These include:

> Aude Maltais, FQRSC Master's Fellowship and a Joseph-Armand Bombardier Canada Graduate Scholarship for her project “Le concept de réserve indienne: étude de cas de la communauté de Nutashkuan».

> Lachlan MacKinnon, PhD , “Deindustrialization and the Transition to Post-Industrial Society in Sydney, Nova Scotia, 1967-Present.” SSHRC Doctoral Fellowship.

> Kristoffer Archibald, PhD, An Environmental History of the Sydney (Nova Scotia) Tar Sands. SSHRC Doctoral Fellowship.

Still other student affiliates have recently completed their comprehensive exams and/or proposal defenses (colloquia) such as Ioana Radu, Rosemary O'Reilly, and Chris Miller.

We would also like to acknowledge Kate Duffy, who has been with us for the past year as a Fulbright funded graduate student - it has been great to have you here, Kate! Before she leaves though, she will be launching her Goose Village project. Stay tuned!
