Portrait of Gail Coughlin

Gail Coughlin
Fields: Early America, French-Canadian History, Native American History
Education: B.A ., French and Francophone Studies, UMass Amherst

I have been interested in history for as long I can remember. I plan to focus my studies mainly on the cross-cultural exchanges between the Haudenosaunee and the French settlers in what is now Quebec. Currently, I am working on a project in conjunction with the historical society of my hometown, exploring the relationship between the earliest English settlers of Dedham, MA and their Indigenous neighbors.
