Lead Researcher


Mélanie Méthot Ph.D.

Professor of History, University of Alberta, Augustana Campus, Canada.

Hello! My name is Mélanie Méthot and I am currently a professor at the Augustana Campus (Camrose) of the University of Alberta. I received a Bachelor of Arts in History and Political Science at McGill University, a Master of Arts in History at the Université de Moncton, and finally, a Ph.D. in History at the University of Calgary! I also have an interest in the scholarship of Teaching and Learning. 

I have published on the turn of the 20th century social reform movements in Montreal and Winnipeg. My new research lies within the scope of legal history. I have completed a monograph on the bigamy case of Julie Morin tentatively titled: "Bigame malgré elle: Julie Russell perd son héritage." (under consideration). I am now working on a project focusing on bigamy in Australia.

I was born in Quebec City and was married in Quebec, but have lived most of my life with my husband Mark in Alberta. All five of our children were born in Alberta as well.
