About Me

Blog Status: On hiatus

This blog began back in August 2014 as a way for me to get back into writing about history. Since then I have been exploring both the well-known and the little-known areas and people of Canadian history one blog post at a time. When asked what the point of my blog is, I usually say I’m trying to poke holes in the idea that our nation’s history is just a big ol’ snooze fest.

Yes, I’m a nerd.

UK and Ireland 2015 121 - Stonehenge
Obligatory selfie at Stonehenge (August 2015). You wouldn’t know it from this blog but I am fascinated by all kinds of history. (Also, Stonehenge lived up to the hype. Ignore the haters!)

For those wondering my name is Carmen Cadeau. I have aย Master of Teaching from the University of Toronto and work as a teacher. This blog is on-hiatus for the foreseeable future. When I’m not on-hiatus, my Twitter focuses on history, museums, and education.

FYI – The disgruntled John A. Macdonald in my header is from this Hark! A Vagrant comic by Kate Beaton, who you should check out if you haven’t already.

Note: To those who would like to cite my blog, please feel free to do so. However, it is likely that your teacher or professor requires a more academic source. As such, I would recommend looking into and using the sources I list at the bottom of each post.

    Wonderful blog, Carmen. I’m not a historian, but I do love history in general (and have a particular fondness for our own). I got a little thrill when I googled something about coureurs des bois clothing and found your fashion flashback series. Great job. I write a personal blog about sewing and knitting and every year participate in a friendly competition over the winter. I am doing some informal research to shore up my aging memory as I think about “Canadian” influences I can use in my garments for this year’s endeavour. Thanks. Keep up the great work!
