I am interested in histories of local oppositional movements. My research investigates the ways people have used organizing and protest to help imagine and develop new understandings of culture, identity, land, development and work in the late twentieth century. I am currently working on two major projects with such themes. Canada’s Other Red Scare looks at the various Indigenous “Red Power” movements that took shape Canada during the 1960s and 1970s. I have also just completed work on a co-edited introductory textbook with Karen Dubinsky (Queen’s) and Sean Mills (University of Toronto) called Canada and the Third World: Overlapping Histories (University of Toronto Higher Education Press, 2015)
