Bio/Research

Dr. Rai Reece is an interdisciplinary scholar-activist. Her work examines how carceral processes in Canada are organized and maintained by historical and contemporary narratives and practices of colonial violence specific to anti-Black and anti-Indigenous racism. More broadly, her work explores the intersection of punishment and misogynoir as legally and socially enacted via governance and white settler capitalism. A central feature of her work explores how community-based ethnographic pedagogy can be a tool for social activism and the limitations to that praxis. She received the '100 Accomplished Black Canadian Women' Award in 2020 and the Humber College Research Excellence Award in 2018.
