I’ve begun sharing more personal writings on Medium in my series Ambivalent Academic.
My paper “Indigenizing Philosophy on Stolen Lands: A Worry about Settler Philosophical Guardianship” will be published in The Inter‑American Journal of Philosophy, Volume 12, Issue 1, June 2021.
I wrote a book review for “In This Together: Fifteen Stories of Truth & Reconciliation” in the Canadian Journal of Native Studies, 39.2, 2021.
My article “Recognizing Settler Ignorance in the Canadian Truth and Reconciliation Commission” in Feminist Philosophy Quarterly (2018) argues that the Canadian Truth and Reconciliation Commission provides a concrete example of how a politics of recognition fails to transform relationships between Indigenous and settler communities because it fails to account for structural settler ignorance.
My chapter “On the Existential Damage of School Shootings” in Feminist Phenomenology: Practical and Theoretical Perspectives (Rowman & Littlefield, 2018) gives a phenomenological account of habits of hypervigilance after the 2007 Dawson College school shooting. I draw from classical and critical phenomenology, as well as from my own work experience as a self-defence instructor and trainer at COPA (centre ontarien de prévention des agressions [Assault Prevention Centre of Ontario]), to describe the possibility of gaining trust in the world again through bodily practices in the form of feminist self defence classes.
My doctoral thesis “Unable to Hear: Settler Ignorance and the Canadian Truth and Reconciliation Commission” articulates a novel theoretical framework of settler ignorance, which reveals how the elimination of Indigenous peoples requires their delegitimatization as knowers.
