SSHRC IG awarded 2012: This research program will explore Michel Foucault's influential work on sexuality and delinquency. The three-fold objectives of this research program are: first, to take up Foucault’s genealogical studies of delinquency and sexuality in order to pursue a more sustained and...
Beyond Collaboration and Resistance: Accommodation at the Weihsien Internment Camp, China, 1943-1945Download
In this thesis, I explore the experiences of some 2,000 allied civilians in the Japanese-run Weihsien Internment Camp (濰縣集中營) in Shandong, China from 1943 to 1945. Beyond serving as a counterpoint to the Japanese internment in North America during the Second World War, the Weihsien Camp also...
While studies in Renaissance childhoods, literary and historical, are becoming more prominent, this work has failed to distinguish between children and adolescents, leaving youth, as such, largely unexamined. My project attends not to the children of early modern drama, but to post-pubescent...
In recent years there has been a burgeoning literature in the area of domestic abuse and motherhood/mothering. However, there is surprisingly little overlap between these two literatures. Both do not specifically consider abused women’s subjective mothering experiences, and do not critically...
Mapping of genomic regions associated with agronomic traits and resistance to diseases in Canadian spring wheatDownload
Wheat breeders, in addition to phenotypic selection, employ molecular markers in their programs for different purposes, including parental selection, quality control, analysis of advanced lines (cultivars), on genetic purity and identity, and for markers assisted selection. In the first study of...
This one-hour documentary unearths the story of the children, women, men who were students and teachers in Canada’s racially segregated schools. With a vibrant musical score composed by jazz legend, Joe Sealy, it is a poignant and unfailingly honest evocation of the struggle of African Canadians...
Morphological characterization of fungi associated with the ascochyta blight complex and pathogenic variability of Mycosphaerella pinodes on field pea crops in central AlbertaDownload
Field pea crops in central Alberta were surveyed for ascochyta blight from 2011 to 2012 and fungal isolates were recovered from foliar lesions on selected plants. Cultural and microscopic characterization of the 275 isolates obtained revealed that 272 were of Mycosphaerella pinodes and three were...
This thesis examines Indigenous rhetorics of resistance from the Treaty Six negotiations in 1876 to the 1930s. Using methods from Comparative Literature and Indigenous literary studies, the thesis situates the rhetoric of northern Plains Indigenous peoples in the context of settler-colonial...
Deletion or substitution of conserved amino acid residues at the tip of the domain IV of Tet(O) impairs tetracycline resistanceDownload
Resistance to tetracycline (Tc), an inhibitor of protein synthesis, decreases its effectiveness for the treatment of bacterial infections. Tc resistance (TcR) can be mediated by the ribosomal protection protein, Tet(O), which was first reported in Campylobacter jejuni, a cause of bacterial...
