The Wilson Institute for Canadian History is happy to announce that Kassandra Luciuk, a PhD candidate from the University of Toronto, has been awarded its very first Corsini Fellowship in Canadian History. During her two-month residence at the Wilson Institute, Kassandra will work on her dissertation “Contracting Legitimacy: Nation building, ethnic identity, and the politics of citizenship in Cold War Canada, 1940-1991.”
As a Corsini Fellow, Kassandra will receive $5,000, a work space at the L.R. Wilson Institute, and access to McMaster’s libraries and archival collections. The fellowship starts on 1 August 2018 and ends on 30 September 2018. Kassandra will also produce a blog post based on her research and present a paper at a future Wilson Institute public event.
