Beatrice Craig
Ph.D., University of Maine, 1983
Professor of History
University of Ottawa
Ottawa, Ontario, Canada

A specialist in Canadian history and women’s history, Professor Craig’s work focuses on the socio-economic and socio-cultural impacts of the emergence of industrial capitalism on Atlantic societies. Her research falls under two headings: 1) the evolving roles of middle class women and families in northern France during and in the aftermath of the industrial revolution, and 2) the economic and social transformations of eastern Canadian rural society in the late eighteenth century and into the nineteenth century. From her research into the latter topic, she has produced a book entitled Backwoods Consumers and Homespun Capitalists: The Rise of a Market Culture in Eastern Canada (University of Toronto Press, 2008). She has also published many articles and book chapters on topics in both Canadian and women’s history, and has another recent book out entitled The Land in Between: A History of Madawaska, 13,000 BP to World War One (Tilbury House, 2008). At the University of Ottawa, Professor Craig teaches courses on Canadian and women’s history, including courses entitled “British North America,” “Women in the Western World to 1750,” “Women in the Western World since 1750,” and a “Seminar in Women’s History.”
