Biography:
Courtney Jung is Professor of Political Science at University of Toronto. She is the author of Then I was Black: South African Political Identities in Transition (Yale University Press, 2000) and The Moral Force of Indigenous Politics: Critical Liberalism and the Zapatistas (Cambridge University Press, 2008). She has written about identity formation, social movements, and democratic transitions. She has been a fellow at the Institute for Advanced Study and received fellowships from the Social Science and Humanities Research Council, the Mellon Foundation, and Fulbright.

What I'm Working On:
I am currently working on four projects. I am developing an archive of interviews with scholars who conducted research in Africa in the 1950s and 1960s. I have recently written about the Canadian residential schools apology and the TRC, and plan to conduct research on the work of the TRC once it starts up this summer. I am also writing about race, class, and ethnicity in the construction of Mexican indigenous identity. Finally, I have recently received funding to conduct research on the judicial enforcement of social and economic rights in developing countries.
