About

Joseph Tohill is a university educator and author.

A former Fulbright scholar (at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology), I hold a PhD in history from York University and a BA and MA in History from the University of Western Ontario.

I study, write about, and teach twentieth-century American and Canadian history and the history of public policy, consumer politics, and consumer activism from a transnational and comparative perspective.

I recently co-edited (with Louis Hyman) a multi-authored collection, Shopping for Change: Consumer Activism in North American History (published by Between the Lines Press and Cornell University Press, 2017). I am currently working on a manuscript for A Consumers’ War: Price Control and Political Consumerism in Wartime North America, based on my PhD dissertation.

I teach Canadian and American history at Ryerson University and York University in Toronto.
