The School for the Study of Canada is pleased to welcome Dr. Elizabeth Elliot-Meisel for the fall of 2022, as the inaugural Trent University Fulbright Research Chair.
Dr. Elizabeth Elliot-Meisel joined the Department of History at Creighton University (Omaha, NE, USA) in 1993 and was promoted to Associate Professor in 2000. She served as department chair from 2001-2010. Elliot-Meisel received her Ph.D. from Duke University, where she was on a Ford Foundation scholarship.
Dr. Elliot-Meisel’s first book, Arctic Diplomacy: Canada and the United States in the Northwest Passage (1998) built upon and expanded her doctorate thesis. Her research continues to focus on U.S.-Canada relations in the Arctic in general and the Northwest Passage in particular. Recent publications include the co-authored (P. Whitney Lackenbauer) 2-volume document collection “One of the Great Polar Navigators”: Captain T.C. Pullen’s Personal Records of Arctic Voyages. Lackenbauer and Elliot-Meisel are currently writing a biography of Pullen, and Elliot-Meisel is also writing a second book about Canadians in the Arctic, tentatively titled Arctic Visionaries.
Elliot-Meisel believes that History tells the ever-dynamic story of people that always asks new questions of the past and challenges people of today to seek a deeper and broader understanding of those who came before them.
