    I am a PhD candidate in the Faculty of Education, York University with a projected graduation date of June 2013. I did my Masters of Arts at OISE/UT in the History of Education deptartment within Theory and Policy Studies and graduated in 2007. My BA degree was in Women’s Studies and History, also at University of Toronto. My work on the transformative curricular model, Historic Space, has been my ongoing research focus since 2000. As an interdisciplinary scholar, I have presented at conferences in women’s studies, history, and education and look forward to getting to know other scholars interested in combining practical methods with transformative results.
