Recent Grad Katie Anderson Speaks on Ontario Agricultural Animal History

Posted on Sunday, June 28th, 2015

Recent graduate Katie Anderson (MA '14) is giving a presentation on July 4th at Doon Heritage Village of the Waterloo Regional Museum on her Master's Thesis research, completed here in the Department last year. Katie's talk is part of the "History Under the Trees" event sponsored by the Waterloo Historical Society, which this year is themed: "Barnyard Genealogy: Livestock in Early Twentieth Century Ontario." Katie's excellent thesis, “'Hitched Horse, Milked Cow, Killed Pig': Pragmatic Stewardship and the Paradox of Human/Animal Relationships in Southern Ontario, 1900-1920" contributes to the Department's strengths in Canadian rural history. Katie is also currently a teacher-interpreter at Joseph Schneider Haus, and just finished a Bachelor of Education.

The University of Guelph resides on the land of the Between the Lakes Treaty No. 3, the territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit. This land is part of the Dish with One Spoon, a covenant between Indigenous nations to live peaceably on the territories of the Great Lakes region. We recognize that today this gathering place is home to many First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples and acknowledging them reminds us of our collective responsibility to the land where we learn, live and work.
