Political Science professor Yann Allard-Tremblay receives SSHRC Insight Development Grant

Yann Allard-Tremblay, a recently-hired professor in the Department of Political Science, received an SSHRC Insight Development Grant. The grant funding supports research projects by scholars to develop new research questions and/or approaches. In the 2019-20 applicant pool, Allard-Tremblay received a total of $44,943 for 2 years.
Allard-Tremblay’s research focuses on “Disjunctive Indigenous Resistance and the Transformation of Political Thought”. The project “sets itself the problem of thinking about politics in light of the specific Canadian context of settler colonialism. It seeks to offer a theoretical synthesis and elucidation of the literature on Indigenous resurgence and revitalization. As well, it seeks to build on this synthesis to contribute to the decolonization and indigenization of Political theory; and to the reconciliation of Western political theory with Indigenous political thought.”
Congratulations on receiving the grant!
