Assistant Professor of Sociology and Criminology, University of Alberta

My interests concern a range of topics, especially political movements, decolonization, and prisons. I currently have two research projects. The first is my work on the University of Alberta Prison Project. Our research team interviews incarcerated people and staff about their experiences living and working inside prisons. I am currently writing about Indigenous peoples’ experiences with cultural prison programming. The second project is about Canada’s right-wing nationalist movement. My study shows how right-wing ideology and prejudice are intimately connected to mainstream Canadian culture, challenging pop media narratives that present right-wing groups as “un-Canadian”. I am also Red River Métis and working with the Indigenous Engagement Advisory Committee (IEAC) to further develop Augustana’s Indigenous studies program.
