CRISS Award Supports Publication
Published on December 16 2013
Dr. Jane Helleiner (SOCI) recently received an award from the Council for Research in the Social Sciences (CRISS) to support the publication of her new book manuscript tentatively entitled Bordering Canadianness: Border Lives, Crossings and Securitization. According to Dr. Helleiner, "Bordering Canadianness: Border Lives, Crossings and Securitization offers a theoretically informed, grounded analysis of Canadian border resident engagements with, and perceptions of, a changing Canada/US border before and after 9/11. Approaching the Canada/US border from the vantage point of border residents reveals how a changing border is navigated on the ground and uncovers aspects of contemporary bordering absent from dominant discourses. Using interviews with Canadian Niagara border residents and border-related articles from the local press , the book explores accounts of childhood and youthful border crossings for consumption and leisure, post- 9/11 border securitization, and nationalized and other border identities." Inquiries can be sent directly to Dr. Helleiner.
