BIOGRAPHY

I am a Post-Doctoral Fellow with the Centre on Foreign Policy and Federalism at St. Jerome’s University. My research interests include the politicization of ethnocultural communities in Canada during the 1960s and 1970s. My work explores how ethnicity was constructed by political actors in their efforts to court the so-called “ethnic vote” in Metro Toronto.
