Jodey Nurse is a Research Assistant Professor in the Department of History at the University of Waterloo. She is also a past L. R. Wilson Assistant Professor at the Wilson Institute for Canadian History at McMaster University and a former University of Waterloo Postdoctoral Fellow. In 2016, she completed her Ph.D. at the University of Guelph.


Dr. Nurse returns to the University of Waterloo to continue her research with Dr. Bruce Muirhead on the history of Canada's supply-managed dairy, egg, and poultry industries. Central to their work is the examination of asymmetrical power relations among stakeholders in agricultural marketing systems and the polarized agricultural policies that have emerged in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.


Dr. Nurse also studies and writes about women in agricultural organizations and rural society more generally. Her first monograph, Cultivating Community: Women and Agricultural Fairs in Ontario is scheduled to be released by McGill-Queen's University Press in February 2022.
