Biography:
Emily Gilbert completed her undergraduate degree in Literature and Fine Art at York University, her MA in Geography at York University, and her PhD in Geography at the University of Bristol, UK. She undertook a SSHRC-funded postdoc in the Department of Geography at Queen's University, before being cross-appointed at the University of Toronto in the Department of Geography and the Canadian Studies program. She is currently an Associate Professor, cross-appointed between the Canadian Studies program at University College, and the Department of Geography and Planning.

What I'm Working On:
am engaged in two primary research projects. The first is an examination of battlefield compensation that is being made in cases of inadvertent death, injury and property damage. These practices are interesting in and of themselves, but I also have a broader concern for how war restructures the ways that lives are valued (or not), from claims made in response to acts of terrorism, to compensation for military veterans. A second line of inquiry is on the changing politics of the Canada-US border. I examine the ways that border risks--economic and social--are being used to discipline behaviour and promote new forms of citizenship practice.
