Congratulations -- New MA on Catharine Whyte's Museological Gaze

Drawing Home poster
This month Katarina Welsch defended her thesis “Catharine R. Whyte et la preservation du patrimoine culturel des Rocheuses canadiennes: Une visionaire en avance sur son temps.”  

It investigates Catharine Whyte's influence on museums, collections, and cultural memory of the Canadian Rockies. Relations with First Nations are a focus in this research. Welsch conducted archival research at Banff's Whyte Museum of the Canadian Rockies. 

Watch for the movie "Drawing Home" coming out next spring for another look at the Whytes.
