Bio/Research

I received my PhD in Political Science from Northwestern University in 1999. I also hold a Diplôme d’études approfondies in Comparative Politics from the University of Paris, and a Master of Arts degree in French Literature from McMaster University.

Prior to joining Laurier, I taught in the Political Science Department at the University of Utah (2000-2003). I have held visiting positions at School of International Relations at the University of Southern California and at the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies in Geneva.

I am interested in international political economy, international relations theory, and international organizations. Within international political economy, I focus on the politics of trade. Conceptually, I research the intersection of cultural claims with the economic mandates of international organizations. How does the World Trade Organization accommodate concerns about culture industries? How does the World Intellectual Property Organization respond to requests by indigenous communities to integrate traditional knowledge? How do international organizations whose mandates overlap interact with each other? Related to this larger research program, I have an interest in cultural diplomacy.
