Research

I focus on two main areas of research: Colonial North America and the Atlantic World, and public history.

Jarvis

The Loyalist William Jarvis and Son, cir. 1791. Archives of Ontario.

Most recently I completed my dissertation under the supervision of Nancy L. Rhoden. Entitled Dishonoured Americans: Loyalist Manhood and Political Death in Revolutionary North America, it explores how loyalists and patriots worked within the honour codes of the eighteenth century to justify their allegiances and attack their enemies.

I am currently working on a post-doctoral research project exploring ways to employ augmented reality for public history and cultural empowerment.

I also do freelance research and have worked for museums and private companies. Contact me at tcompeau@gmail.com for more information.
