Comment: It looks like this includes material from her book The Slender Thread: Irish Women on the Southern Avalon Peninsula of Newfoundland, 1750-1860. As a prof she gets good grades for her senior year courses, those for HIST 101 are more mixed, that's according to Rate My Professors. If I were in Toronto I'd attend. If you do and want to leave comment here please do so.
