She held the Nancy Rowell Jackman Chair in Women’s Studies at Mount Saint Vincent University, 2019-21. Her transdisciplinary research has centred on transnational social justice movements under conditions of globalization, notably transnational feminist, peasant, and Indigenous peoples’ organizing, and their significance for social innovation, political thought, and democratic life in the face of contemporary crises. Her work has been published in English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, German and Italian.
