Christine Whitehouse is from Halifax and is a Mount alumna. She completed her MA in modern German history at Carleton University, where she is currently a PhD candidate.
Christine’s primary research interest lies in the transnational history of anti-semitism, particularly Jewish migration between Nazi Germany and North America. Her secondary focus is Public History, especially the way the Holocaust is remembered and represented in Canadian museums, classrooms, and on the web. Her 2013 article, “Representing anti-semitism in a Canadian National Museum: The Riot at Christie Pits” (Peace and Conflict: Journal of Peace Psychology Vol. 19:4) summarizes her exhibition proposal for the Canadian Museum for Human Rights.
In the fall semester 2014, Christine will be teaching HIST 2208: From Optimism to Destruction, Europe 1890-1933.
