I am currently developing two research projects. The first project seeks to return historical focus to the early years of the Nazi regime through an examination of  violence meted out by the state, and the manner by which the German populace responded to state-sanctioned murder prior to the Holocaust. The second project deals with memory and memorialization of the Nazi era as exhibited in historic sites in and around Berlin, with a focus on the Ravensbrück memorial site.

Daniel Gorman

Chair of the Department and Professor

I am interested in the history of the British Empire (19th and 20th centuries), modern Britain, and the history of global governance. I'm currently working on a project which assesses the role of the UN as a venue for debates over decolonization from the end of WWII to the early 1960s. I also teach at the Balsillie School of International Affairs.

I am a native of Waterloo, Ontario where I went to Lexington Public School and Lincoln Heights Public School. I then went to Waterloo Collegiate and became interested in history under teachers like Jack Sinkins and Paul Voisin. A trip to Europe with my brother and parents in 1972 was a real rush. I couldn't get enough of those Church crypts. For no reason that I can remember I took Geography or Political Science at Wilfrid Laurier University.

Rebecca MacAlpine

Sessional Instructor

Rebecca MacAlpine is a PhD Candidate in History at the University of Waterloo. She received her Bachelor and Master of Arts from the University of Waterloo and a Master of Teaching from the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education at the University of Toronto. Her current research explores the relationship between illegitimacy and gender-based violence in seventeenth century Somerset, England. These connections help to illuminate how institutional structures perpetuated and created systems of gender-based violence, which marginalized unwed mothers in early modern Somerset.

In addition to her research interests, Rebecca is also a graduate educational developer with the Center for Teaching Excellence. In this role she works with graduate educators across the six faculties at the University of Waterloo to mentor and develop their teaching practices. While engaged in educational development, Rebecca has become interested in incorporating a variety of innovative pedagogies into the classroom to develop democratic spaces to talk about hard subjects.
