New Mitacs Postdoctoral Fellow - Dr. Mark Tovey
The Public History program is delighted to announce its very first Postdoctoral Fellow starting this summer (May 2016-August 2018)! Mark Tovey (Carleton PhD, 2011) has won a Mitacs Postdoctoral Fellowship to conduct oral histories of the St-George-Grosvenor-Piccadilly neighbourhood, in conjunction with the Heritage Conservation District study currently led by the city of London and Tausky Heritage Consultants. Dr. Tovey will research beyond built heritage to study the meaning of cultural landscapes and material culture. The end research product will be an interactive website with geolocated objects associated with oral history video clips.
