The members of the Bibliographical Society of Canada (BSC) Fellowships Committee are very pleased to announce that Marie-José Ruiz has been awarded the Tremaine Fellowship for 2021 for her project, “MacDonald College Magazine: Archives of the Ontario Agricultural College and the MacDonald Institute for Domestic Science.”
Marie-José Ruiz is Associate Professor of British History at Université de Paris and Université de Picardie Jules Verne. With the support of the Tremaine Fellowship, Professor Ruiz plans to investigate the interplay between migration, education, colonial training, and the construction of gender through the prism of the history of the Ontario Agricultural College and the MacDonald Institute for Domestic Science. To do so, she will study the colleges’ yearbooks and magazines, as well as migrants’ letters to the metropolitan emigration societies and their workbooks and class notes, all of which are held at the University of Guelph. Her project, which will result in a monograph focused on migration infrastructures, will also assess the long-term impact of colonial training on Canadian migrants
The Tremaine Fellowship is offered in memory and through the generosity of Marie Tremaine (1902-1984), the doyenne of Canadian bibliographers. The Fellowship was instituted in 1987 and is offered annually to support the work of a scholar engaged in some area of bibliographical research, including textual studies and publishing history and with a particular emphasis on Canada.
