Pat Sheppard is a PhD student in the Interuniversity Program in Art History at Concordia University. A lifelong interest in gender-based social, political, economic and cultural concerns led her to the study of Art History after retiring from a 25 year career in health care beginning first as a nurse and subsequently holding increasingly senior administrative positions. She completed a BFA (Art History) in 2010 and an MA (Art History) in 2012. Her current research focuses on albums/scrapbooks produced by women in Canada during the nineteenth century. Through the study of how they were created, what they contained and how they were shared, she is exploring their role in the development of the various aspects of identity.
