Research Associate, Department of History, University of New Brunswick

Dr. Cindy Brown teaches and supervises in the fields of Modern Italy, international humanitarian law, and European History with an emphasis on war and society. She holds a Ph.D. in History from the Western University (2013) an MA in History from the University of New Brunswick (2004) and a BA (History Honours) also from UNB (2002). She is the Executive Director of the Gregg Centre for the Study of War and Society and a Research Associate with the Department of History at UNB.

Her doctoral research examined the impact of the Second World War on Italian civilians, with special consideration of the relationship between Italian civilians and soldiers and the evolution of Allied Military Government and Civil Affairs in Italy and Northwest Europe. She connects these ideas in her research and teaching across the twentieth century, most recently as a co-investigator on a SSHRC-funded project (with Western Ontario) called “Long-term housing outcomes of under-housed Syrian refugees” that seeks to understand the challenges faced by government assisted Syrian refugees in finding suitable housing.
