The Department is delighted to announce the appointment of our new Post-Doctoral Researcher, Dr. Allyson Stevenson.

Dr. Stevenson earned her PhD at the University of Saskatchewan and is currently working on a book about the history of transracial adoption in Saskatchewan entitled, Intimate Integration: Adopt Indian and Métis (AIM) in Saskatchewan and the Colonization of Indigenous Kinship. With us at Guelph, Dr. Stevenson will build on her research on the political activism of First Nations and Metis women in Saskatchewan since the 1970's to conduct a broader study of western Canadian Aboriginal women and how they developed an indigenous critique of the child welfare system.

Welcome aboard Allyson!

The University of Guelph resides on the land of the Between the Lakes Treaty No. 3, the territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit. This land is part of the Dish with One Spoon, a covenant between Indigenous nations to live peaceably on the territories of the Great Lakes region. We recognize that today this gathering place is home to many First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples and acknowledging them reminds us of our collective responsibility to the land where we learn, live and work.
