Catherine (she/they) is a PhD candidate in the Department of History at the University of Waterloo. She received her BA in History from York University and her MA in History from the University of Toronto. Her current research focuses on the gendering of the curricula in Canadian missionary schools in Angola between 1880 and 1920. In particular, she focuses on the mission stations run by the Canadian Congregational Foreign Missionary Society. Using the United Church of Canada records and oral histories, she examines the missionary curriculum for girls and boys and the lived and living consequences of this education for Angolan women.
