Abigail Curlew

Junior Affiliate (PhD)

Abigail Curlew is in the PhD program for Sociology at Carleton University working under Dr. Aaron Doyle and Dr. Jeffrey Monaghan. Her SSHRC funded doctoral work, ‘Enacting Bill C-51: national security and settler-governmentality from Parliament Hill to the Canadian Hinterlands’, seeks to explore how Indigenous protesters advocating for self-determination and land sovereignty get categorized as national security threats. Curlew is particularly keen on rigorous empirical exploration entwined with social and cultural theory to produce work that is politically applicable and oriented towards social change. She intends to conduct this research through a combination of ATIA methods and institutional ethnography exploring policing and intelligence work.
