STU Alumna returns to teach innovative intersession course

Dr. Anne Dance is offering History 3473: “Frontiers in World History” from 28 April to 22 May, Monday-Thursday mornings from 9:00AM – 11:30AM.

This course links local history with World History by examining the connection between the histories of frontiers familiar to students with those more distant to them. Students will gain an appreciation of the importance of frontiers to historical events and processes as well as the impact of human history on frontiers.

Dr. Dance graduated from STU in 2007, and went on to complete an MA in History at the University of Victoria and a PhD at the University of Stirling, where she was a Commonwealth Scholar. She has also worked in the House of Commons and held a variety of public policy positions. Her current research areas include the creation of public space on Parliament Hill, an environmental history of Manitoba feminist and agricultural expert E. Cora Hind, the intersection between farming and hydroelectricity generation in British Columbia, and the reclamation of the Athabasca oil sands and the Sydney tar ponds.
