Speakers: Anthony Badame & Stephanie Sukhareva

Join Museum Studies masters graduates Anthony and Stephanie as they discuss their process of turning original genealogical and archival research into an interactive and inspiring historical walking tour. Explore the role of the Eaton family as fervent supporters of Canada’s engagement in the First World War, and the profound effects of their involvement on Eaton’s employees, and Toronto at large. Anthony and Stephanie will present a compelling overview of their findings, as well as a case study of how to create interpretive content from your own research.

Anthony Badame completed his Master’s degree in Museum Studies at the Faculty of Information at the University of Toronto. During his time at the University of Toronto, he was fortunate enough to present his work on Hopewell Effigy Pipes at the 2016 iSchool student conference and both co-created and led a walking tour on Eaton’s employees who served during the First World War. He is currently an Education interpreter at Black Creek Pioneer Village, where he delivers various historic programmes and tours for a wide variety of audiences.

Stephanie Sukhareva is a Master in Museum Studies graduate from the University of Toronto, with a Double Bachelor of German Language and History of Art from the University of Ottawa. As an undergraduate, Stephanie presented her research on German feminist art of the mid -20th century at the Department of Modern Languages Symposium, earning the Austrian Book Prize. At the University of Toronto, Stephanie co-created and presented a historic walking tour on employees of the T. Eaton Company who enlisted to serve in the First World War, and their families, bringing original archival and genealogical research to the streets of downtown Toronto. In the fall of 2017, Stephanie co-presented on museum programming for youth and young adults at the Ontario Museum Association Annual Conference in Kingston, Ontario. Stephanie is currently working at the Ontario Museum Association in Toronto.
