Ongoing Research:

1) The Materiality of Security: Funded by a SSHRC IDG (2013-2015) “Securing Collective Memory” this research contributes to an emergent focus in the sociology of security and international relations on the objects that make governance and securitization possible. In partnership with William Walters (Carleton University) this research project will use archival data to examine the transformation of sites of security in the US and U.K.

2) Urban Sociology: Funded by a SSHRC IDG (2013-2015) “Collective Trauma and Municipal Policymaking in Post-Industrial War Towns: Nitro, Mercury, and Uranium City” with Kevin Walby examines what happens to purpose-built towns and the people who live there when industries withdraw, leaving behind economic strain and environmental contamination. This research extends Anais' focus on the materials of war and security by focusing on the material and social consequences of war industries and their dissolution.
