Dr. Mark Humphries

I successfully defended my PhD in December 2008 and have been most fortunate enough to secure a three year limited-term appointment in the Department of Humanities at Mount Royal College, in Calgary, Alberta. Over the past year I've been through a baptism of fire, teaching six new courses from first year survey's to four year seminars. At Mount Royal I get to explore my interests in Canadian political and social history, medical history, and war and society.

Combat Stress:  A phrase used in both the First and Second World Wars ‘Not Yet Diagnosed (Nervous)' may best sum up the complexity and uncertainty of labeling mental illness.
