Congratulations, Dr. Kehoe

Dr. Karly Kehoe

Saint Mary’s History is delighted to announce that our own Dr. Karly Kehoe was among the 305 Canada Research Chairs announced on February 9. Dr. Kehoe will be the new Canada Research Chair in Atlantic Canada Communities.

“Being the CRC in Atlantic Canada Communities is really important to me, academically and personally,” says Dr. Kehoe. “A big part of my identity as a scholar is the work that I do beyond the walls of the university, and this CRC is enabling me to continue with this mission.”

Dr. Kehoe’s work focuses on work on religion, migration, and identity in the British Atlantic and on sustainable development in rural communities. 

A Cape Breton native and Saint Mary’s alumna, Dr. Kehoe joined the History department this January. Until recently she was a lecturer in history at Scotland’s University of the Highlands and Islands, and a senior lecturer in history at Glasgow Caledonian University. She has held research fellowships at the University of Guelph and Yale University, sits on the editorial board of the Scottish Historical Review, and is a fellow of the Royal Historical Society. Kehoe is a member and co-chair of the Royal Society of Edinburgh’s Young Academy of Scotland and in 2015 she was appointed to the Global Young Academy.
