History for Lunch in March will feature a short presentation and discussion by recent MA alumna Anna England exploring "From History to Museum Studies."

Anna England completed her MA in History at Lakehead University in 2017. Her Major Research Project, "In Search of Freedom, Equality and Opportunity: African American Sojourners to the Soviet Union, 1920- 1940," focused on the experiences of African Americans whole the US during the interwar period in search of improved social, political, and economic prospects in the USSR. She began the Masters of Museum Studies program at the University of Toronto in Fall 2017 and has recently been accepted to complete an internship at the National World War II Museum in New Orleans this summer.

Anna will speak on her research as an MA student at Lakehead University and will reflect on her transition on to Museum Studies, and her current training at the University of Toronto. 
History for Lunch is an opportunity to put a bit of History in your diet and for members of the community and the Department of History to showcase their current research.

More information about the sessions can be found on the Department of History website (history.lakeheadu.ca) and on our Facebook page (facebook.com/lakeheadhistory)
