MA Students
Department of Anthropology


I graduated with a BA (Hons.) in Sociology and a secondary major in Anthropology from University of Victoria in 2017. My honours research studied short stories (headcanons) written by fans of Harry Potter on Tumblr, to understand how they depicted characters and emotions associated with grief, mourning, and loss.

My masters research utilizes an intersectional approach to understand fractures in the Western Roman Empire. This research seeks to understand how fractures sustained in daily life might be affected by all the factors that make up a person’s identity such as social class.
