Dr Lenihan’s work investigates demographic patterns among Scottish emigrants in the
nineteenth and early twentieth century. Her PhD research sought to establish the key
characteristics of the Scottish migrants arriving between 1840 and 1920. Her talk will give an overview of this research and draw parallels between her doctoral work and her postdoctoral research at Guelph.
