Reliable sources confirm that Daniel Macfarlane has successfully demonstrated that there is indeed life after a History M.A. Since defending his thesis in 2005, he has lived in Germany, worked as a researcher for a number of U of S professors, co-written a documentary history series for History Television, done documentaries for the Centre for the Study of Co-operatives, and worked as a researcher for the Saskatchewan Institute of Public Policy. All that proved too much for Dan, however, and so he has fled back into the quieter groves of studentdom: just this month he has embarked on his Ph.D in History at the University of Ottawa, studying the history of Canadian-German foreign relations during the Cold War. Congratulations Dan!
