Christopher Dummitt is one of our new guest professors at the Department of History for

the summer term 2011. He received his Bachelor’s degree from Trent University, his Master’s

degree from Dalhousie University, and his Ph.D. from Simon Fraser University. Dr. Dummitt

has taught at the Institute for the Study of the Americas at the University of London and is

currently an assistant professor in the Department of History at Trent University in Canada.

His research focuses on modern Canadian cultural, political and gender history. His

publications include Contesting Clio’s Craft: New Directions and Debates in Canadian

History (2009) with Michael Dawson, and The Manly Modern: Masculinity in Postwar

Canada (2007). He is currently working on a book tentatively titled The Exorcism of

Mackenzie King: The Embarrassing Private Life of a Prime Minister and the Belated Making

of a Nation. He also has an interest in the writing of history writ large, particularly the ways

that historians do, and do not, connect with non-academic audiences. He has written for

Canada’s national newspaper, the Globe and Mail, as well as The Literary Review of Canada.
