It’s been an exciting 18 hours. Yesterday, just before supper time, I was informed that my application for dissertation funding through the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (lovingly referred to as “shark” for the acronym SSHRC) has been forwarded from Carleton to the Council! While I won’t know if I get the grant until April 2022, it is an important step towards realizing the potential for my dissertation research. As I begin working on my proposal next year I’ll get more into what I’m hoping to do. Right now I’m still working on strengthening my base knowledge.
For the other bit of news, my review of Heidi Bohaker’s book Doodem and Council Fire: Anishinaabe Governance through Alliance was published this morning in volume 36, issue 3 of the Canadian Journal of Law and Society / Revue Canadienne Droit Et Société. For full citation information see the most recent entry on my published works page.
Don’t forget, I still have one more article on the way, my first solo original research article. There is also more solo and collaborative research in the works, which will start taking form early next year. Stay tuned!
