Dissertation topic: My dissertation explores the continual interplay between indigenous worldviews and Western Christianity over a five-hundred year period in the municipality of Esquipulas in eastern Guatemala, with an emphasis on shrines and the phenomenon of pilgrimage. My interest in this topic extends across all of the Americas, and it focuses on ways in which indigenous spiritual practices inform and ultimately alter the manner in which non-indigenous peoples practice and approach Christianity.

Dissertation Topic: Data-mining the Legacy of Natural History on the Northern Great Plains
19th century natural history, more commonly known as inventory science, is enjoying a revival in environmental history circles. Once dismissed as antiquated and lacking in theoretical vigour, the massive collections of plants, birds, and animals are now being used today to measure temporal and geographic change in diversity. In this project, I will apply new technological and analytical methods to a study of the Missouri Coteau, located in the heart of the great plains of North America. I will compile and analyze recent statistical and modelling work on the climatic cycles, changes in flora and fauna populations, human migration paths, and land use methods in the Coteau, and compare the results with the existing narratives, emphasizing concurrent landscape use by aboriginal groups. I will also incorporate the numerous early specimens in the herbaria of the universities of Saskatchewan, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Montana; the records of the amateur Natural History societies in Saskatchewan and North Dakota; and ornithological data. Synthesized, this will contribute to the historical baseline used to measure changes in land use and ecology over the past two centuries. After a ‘snapshot’ of the region is assembled, the role of amateurism in the study and development of the region will be examined in greater detail, including aspects of the political and legal apparatus that permitted science expeditions to be undertaken, the funding and recruitment drives that were required, and the instructional literature on collecting that was circulated. The interaction between naturalists, government, universities, museums, and herbaria will be emphasized.

Dissertation topic: Political Activism in Francophone Saskatchewan, 1982-1991
The principal goal of my research is to understand this period of Fransaskois history in relation to the broader theoretical question of how minority languages and cultures survive under difficult and evolving socio-political conditions. Since the 1980s were such a crucial decade for the Fransaskois, understanding activism should cast light on how the community is dealing with current questions such as immigration and integration of francophones from outside of Canada -- a question that currently resonates with francophone communities and Canada as a country.

SAMSON, Amy

SCOTT, Elizabeth A.
Supervisor: C. A. Kent
Dissertation topic: My dissertation is a history of assisted emigration of the East London labouring poor to Canada from 1857 to 1913. This work considers the emigrant as an active participant in their migration and places particular emphasis on the political and cultural relationship between Canada and Britain. I examine the ways in which Canada developed increasingly restrictive immigration policies in response to the movement of thousands of Britain's urban poor effectively "stemming the flow" by the end of the first decade of the twentieth century. These restrictive measures call into question the usefulness of the "British World" model inviting a more complex discussion of the colonial relationship.
Other research interests: Modern British Social History; The British World with emphasis on the relationship between Canada and Britain; Imperial Citizenship; Colonialism; East London, Urban Poverty and the Welfare State in Britain; History of Food and Food Security; Grassroots Political Activism in Nineteenth and Twentieth Century London. I also retain an interest in Canadian Native-Newcomer History.
