hello there!
welcome to my site

Thank you for visiting this website.

I am a full professor in the political science department at the University of Guelph.From 1999-2002, I was Assistant Visiting Professor at the École Supérieure de Commerce de Paris (now ESCP-Europe), part of France’s Grande École system. From 2002-2007 I was a Lecturer, then Senior Lecturer in the Political Studies Department at the University of Otago, New Zealand.

In my work, I focus on Comparative Indigenous Politics in Canada, New Zealand, United States. I have also worked expensively in the areas of International Relations, American foreign policy, Holocaust and genocide studies, and critical race theory.  My mother's family is Trinidadian Indian and my father's family is originally from Scotland but goes back many generations in Nova Scotia. Since these roots have been important in my upbringing and influence the direction of my work, I inevitably bring a multicultural perspective to pressing issues in political science which I hope creates a useful angle through which to assess some aspects of international and domestic politics. Please feel free to have a look and explore my articles, chapters, and books, read my blog and check out my links page. You will also find information on my research grants from the Social Science and Humanities Council of Canada.
