Will KnightI am PhD candidate in Canadian history at Carleton University in Ottawa, Ontario. I am currently writing a dissertation entitled “Modeling Canada’s Aquatic Nature: the Dominion Fisheries Museum and fisheries exhibits 1883-1955.” This project examines the conceptual and material modeling of fish and other marine animals in Ottawa’s fisheries museum. My primary fields of research are museums, fisheries, and natural history in North America in the 19th and 20th centuries.
