I am currently completing my thesis in the Master of Arts in Social and Cultural Anthropology program. My research interests stem from my non-profit work experience in British Columbia at a transition house that provides services to women and children who are fleeing abuse. British Columbia transition houses give an impression that a neoliberal government is trying to ameliorate violence against women. However, my research apprehends how the infrastructure of a “safe place” (house) rearticulates settler-state power through its policies, protocols and paperwork that co-terminously creates and monitors subjects who bolster the neoliberal class divide.
