Historian and recent IHPST graduate Dr. Elizabeth Koester has been featured by the National Post as part of its series highlighting some of the most interesting research being presented at this year’s Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences. Dr. Koester’s research concerns the interaction of law and eugenics in early twentieth-century Ontario. The article discusses two figures from that era who were instrumental in making birth control legal in Canada: social worker Dorothea Palmer and eugenicist A.R. Kaufman. You can read it here.
