I completed my thesis in December 2020 and successfully defended it in early January, 2021. I initially wanted to write a post about it, but decided to wait until it was uploaded to the Brock thesis repository so that it could be accessed digitally. Well, I got news today that it’s been uploaded! You can access the link here:
Re-imagining Niagara: A Spatial Study of Economic Development (1783-1812)
My thesis is meant to be read in conjunction with my final ArcGIS webmap, which can be found here:
Niagara’s Loyalist Era Economic Development
This Story Map is what I used to present the results. It’s a nice quick summary if you want just the Coles notes version.
I’m not sure what I’ll end up doing with this website. If I’m fortunate enough to continue working in the Canadian/digital history field, I may continue to post updates about my work. Either way, thanks for following along up ’til now. It’s been a pleasure!
