I am a PhD Candidate in Geography and Planning at Queen’s University doing research that sits at the intersections of urban political economy and environmental histories. More specifically, I am interested in unpacking how cows’ came to be removed from Kingston, Ontario and what this removal could tell us both about the city’s processes of urbanization as well as cows’ histories. Outside of my PhD work I am generally interested in unpacking and understanding varied cows stories and recently published a paper on the entanglements of cows and goats in a foreign direct investment in Canada.
I am also the founder and host of The Animal Turn Podcast in which each season is set around a particular theme and scholars are interviewed on specific concepts related to those themes. My hope is to create a pedagogical too and resource for scholars and educators alike. Find out more about the the podcast on theanimalturnpodcast.com.
