Affilié chercheur

Dr. Julie Young is Canada Research Chair (Tier 2) in Critical Border Studies and Assistant Professor in Geography and Environment at the University of Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada. Much of her research to date has focused on how migrants and advocates in Canada-US and Mexico-Guatemala border communities interact with and challenge those borders. Her current collaborative project with Grace Wu and Johanna Reynolds is entitled, Remembering Refuge: Between Sanctuary and Solidarity, an open access counter-archive of the Canada-US border as told through the oral histories of Central American and Caribbean migrants and migrant justice advocates working in the Windsor-Detroit and Plattsburgh-Lacolle border regions. Julie is co-editor, with Dr. Susan McGrath, of the open-access book, Mobilizing Global Knowledge: Refugee Research in an Age of Displacement (University of Calgary Press, 2019).
