Elizabeth Paradis


Bio Elizabeth received her MA in Public History from Carleton in 2011 and her internship was at the Museum of Civilization (2010), where she worked as a bilingual researcher for various projects. Her work in research, exhibition planning, cataloguing, video production, and photographic analysis has focused on Canadian, Aboriginal, Quebec, Gender, Environmental, Cultural, Film/TV, and Performance histories.

Elizabeth is currently employed as a freelance copy and content editor, working primarily for academics.

Research My research has focused mostly on the relationship between history and performance (particularly participatory public history), 20th century film and television, gender, and visual representation in Canada. I am equally interested in environmental history, issues of space and place, and the notion of the body as a historical source.
