Appointment of Cynthia Hammond as Director of the Center for Oral History and Digital Storytelling (CODHS)

Dr Cynthia Imogen Hammond is Associate Professor and former Chair of the Department of Art History, Concordia University, Montreal, Canada. During her postdoctoral fellowship at the School of Architecture, McGill University, she studied the relationships between architecture, philanthropy, and gender. In 2012 she published Architects, Angels, Activists and the City of Bath, 1765-1965 (Ashgate), in which she analyses the politics of heritage and memory in this UNESCO World Heritage city, using research-creation as part of her feminist method. Hammond has published numerous essays on art, architecture, gender, and urban landscapes in journals such as Architecture & Ideas, Women’s Studies, and Studies in the Social Sciences. A practising artist with an interest in place, space, and local knowledge, Hammond’s recent creative work includes two artist residencies that address the relationship of women’s history to urban gardens. Her research-creation projects are documented at cynthiahammond.org. Since July 2017 Hammond is lead Co-Director of the Centre for Oral History and Digital Storytelling at Concordia University.
