Cameron Duder, BA, P.G.Dip (Arts), MA, PhD
I am a Vancouver-based editor, writer, indexer and researcher with a passion for writing and a keen interest in helping people get their ideas across. As an award-winning academic writer and a former university lecturer, I know the value of clear writing, thorough research and quality presentation.
I have a BA and MA in history from the University of Otago, New Zealand, and a PhD in history from the University of Victoria, Canada. I have written, edited and indexed work in the humanities, social sciences and business disciplines and for organizations, businesses and private individuals. From 1995 to 2010, I was a university lecturer in Canada and New Zealand, teaching history, gender studies, sociology and visual culture. I am also a qualified adult literacy teacher.
I have published two books, three academic articles, and numerous short essays. I was the recipient of the 2003 Hilda Neatby Prize for Best Article in Canadian Women’s History (English-language), awarded by the Canadian Committee on Women’s History, and the 2004 Canadian Committee on the History of Sexuality award for Best Article in the History of Sexuality in Canada. My book Awfully Devoted Women was selected for the 2011 Over the Rainbow Books list, a book list from the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender Round Table of the American Library Association, and for the 2011-2012 BC Books for BC Schools list, selected and evaluated by teacher-librarians (Association of Book Publishers of BC).
