Sarah Morgan

Barriers to Violent Radicalization Project

Hello everyone my name is Sarah! I recently completed my MA in Religion and Culture from Wilfrid Laurier University. My thesis examined the peaceful Indigenous/non-Indigenous collaboration that took place in 2009 between a small group of Anishinaabe Kweag (women) from Beausoleil First Nation and the local farming community in Tiny Township, Ontario. This group successfully stopped the completion of a landfill, known as Site 41. I had the unique opportunity to approach this topic as an internal researcher, having been a member of this movement for over a decade. My research passions include the intersection of environmental and indigenous studies and social movements. When I am not working or transcribing, you will find me exploring my new city, Toronto, attending community meetings and rallies, or watching the latest episode of Downton Abbey (cup of tea included).

Yasmeen Ghebari

Hello, my name is Yasmeen. I have received a BA in Psychology and Sociology and Social Anthropology, with Honours in Sociology (written about helicopter parents). My focus in school has been on developmental psychology, animal behaviour, and a wide range of topics in sociology and social anthropology. I am currently pursuing a career path working with children, as I believe that enriching the lives of children is critical, as the impacts made can make a lasting impression in their lives. My hobbies and passions include photography (you can often find my camera at my side), travelling (I love exploring new places), and all sorts of art (from crafting to oil painting!)
