Emma Hamilton-Hobbs
MA (Art History)

I am originally from London, Ontario. I graduated with an honours BA at the University of Western Ontario with a double major in Art History and French studies. My research interests include the history and theory of photography, Canadian photographic historiography, and gender and feminist theory. Specifically, I am interested in exploring connections between the (de)construction of gendered identity, performance and photography in late nineteenth-century Canada. I am currently working on my master’s thesis under the supervision of Dr. Carol Payne. In this thesis, I will be exploring links between the photographic portraits of William James Topley (1845-1930) and the (de)construction of gendered and class identities in late Victorian Ottawa.
