Tenure and promotion

I’m happy to share that as of today (February 28, 2023), I have been awarded tenure at Toronto Metropolitan University (TMU). Tenure at TMU also comes with promotion from assistant to associate professor. Yay!

I couldn’t have reached this milestone without the support of many people. This includes my family, who not only support me but also make sacrifices so that I can focus on my research. It also includes many colleagues at the Yellowhead Institute, TMU Sociology, Faculty of Arts, and OVPRI, and USask Indigenous Studies: your support and generous feedback over the years means a lot to me. And of course, I thank all the Indigenous community members who shared their stories with me through various research projects – doing such work with you is why I got into this game in the first place.
