Please join us for the next Rural Issues workshop on December 7th, as we will welcome Dr. Tia Dafnos with her paper “The pacification logics of critical infrastructure resilience.”

The workshop will be, as usual, Thursday evening, from 4:00 pm to 5:30 pm.

We will meet in the Forestry and Geology building, Room 202 at 4:00 pm.

After the workshop, we will reconvene at the Grad House for dinner at 5:30.

Tia joined UNB’s Sociology Department in 2015. Her doctoral work at York University examined changes in the policing of protests and activism in Canada since the mid-1990s, with a focus on the policing of Indigenous peoples’ protests after the 1995 Ipperwash reclamation. She is part of an anti-security collective, an international network of scholars and activists engaged in critical research on law, security, surveillance, policing and governance. Her current research focuses on mapping the ways that state agencies in Canada are developing partnerships with private owner-operators of critical infrastructure to facilitate the exchange of information and intelligence.
