David Dean

I am an historian at Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada specialising in public history and British history. My current research focuses on representations of the past in theatre, museums, and cinema, as well as culture and politics in early modern England. I teach graduate seminars on Museums, National Identity and Public Memory, and on Narrativity and Performance in Public History, while my undergraduate courses include Early Modern Britain, History at the Movies, and Witchcraft, Crime, and Social Disorder in Early Modern England. My latest publication is Museums as Sites for Historical Understanding, Peace, and Social Justice: Views from Canada, a special issue of Peace & Conflict: A Journal of Peace Psychology
