U of L Assistant Professor Named Canada Research Chair

 
 

LETHBRIDGE - The Government of Canada has named Dr. Kristine Alexander a Tier 2 Canada research Chair in Child and Youth Studies.

 

Alexander is an assistant professor in history at the University of Lethbridge and investigates how 20th century children and youth were affected by imperialism, globalization and war. She becomes the U of L's first Chair in the humanities.

 

This announcement comes after the federal government provided $108-million to support 135 newly awarded and renewed Canada Research Chairs.

 

Alexander arrived at the U of L in July, after completing post doctoral fellowships at the University of Saskatchewan and Western University. She received her PhD in history from York University and has successfully published many peer-reviewed journal articles.

 

MP Jim Hillyer says "our government remains committed to attracting and retaining the world's best researchers, creating jobs and strengthening Canada's economy." He adds "through programs such as the Canada Research Chairs, we are supporting cutting edge research at Canadian universities and fostering innovation by helping researchers bring their ideas to the marketplace, benefiting Canadians and improving their quality of life."
