Bio/Research

She has a Ph.D. in Social and Political Thought from York University (2002). Prof. Burman is working on two major individual projects presently: the first is a book manuscript studying the traffic in goods, people and money that makes up the route joining Toronto and Jamaica (working title, Economies of Nostalgia and Yearning: Traveling a Transnational Route). The second, supported by a SSHRC Standard Research Grant, is entitled “Mobile Citizenship, Immobilized Migrants: Detention and Deportation in Canada, Oppositional Activism in Toronto and Montréal”. She was a co-investigator on the SSHRC Major Collaborative Research Initiative “The Culture of Cities Project” (project ended in 2006), where she also did postdoctoral research on transformations in diasporic urban culture in Canada.
