In October 2018, PhD student Jenna Rossi-Camus presented her research at the annual conference of the Canadian Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies.
This year’s conference, held in Niagara Falls, took Wonder in the Eighteenth Century as its theme. Jenna was invited by the conveners to present her work on eighteenth century fashion graphic satire and the collections of Horace Walpole as part of a series of professional development workshops aimed at educators and graduate students.
