Patrick A. Dunae
Clio Media was established in 2002, when we were celebrating the 150th anniversary of public education in British Columbia. Since then, with Clio Media, I've helped to commemorate other civic and corporate anniversaries.
I was born in Victoria, BC, attended local public schools, and live there now.
I completed a Ph.D in History at the University of Manchester and held a post-doctoral fellowship at The University of British Columbia before commencing a post-secondary teaching career. I'm now (2016) retired from teaching, but remain active in the field of scholarly research.
I'm affiliated with the University of Victoria as an Adjunct Associate Professor in the Department of History and from time to time serve as an advisor and assessor on graduate student projects.
At Vancouver Island University, I have the honorary designation of Academic (Professor) Emeritus. My ongoing commitment to VIU is to support its Centre for Heritage Management and undergraduate courses in BC history and public history.
I've worked as an archivist in the State Archives of Western Australia [now called the State Records Office of Western Australia] and the Provincial Archives of BC [now known as the Royal BC Museum and Archives]. I'm a volunteer director of the Friends of the BC Archives.
Recently, I was a director of the Hallmark Heritage Society in Victoria and member of the City of Victoria's Heritage Advisory Panel.
Currently, I'm participating in the city's Burnside Gorge Community Engagement Advisory Group. Information about this neighbourhood planning initiative is posted here.
