Biography:Massell teaches U.S. and Canadian history; Canadian-American relations and environmental history; the history of Quebec,Canada; and Canadian-American Relations. His current research, funded in part by the Government of Quebec, advances the story of the Saguenay River's exploitation through the years of the Second World War. Massell's research also continues to speak to the integration of North American economies, vividly illustrating the process by which American capital and industry drew Canada's resource-rich North into the economic orbit of the United States.
