Broadly, Lindsay’s research interrogates representations of difference and the role educational systems play in the production and maintenance of social dominance; she is ultimately interested in the capacities of education to transform systems of oppression. More specifically, her work has critically examined the representations of refugees in curricula, and she has also recently been exploring the relationships and “boundary-work” between teachers and refugee students. This is where her scholarship most clearly intersects with the focus of the Immigrant and Refugee Health and Wellbeing Research Group, bringing educational spaces and practices into conversation with the group’s holistic view of the contexts and factors affecting health and well-being for those who have been displaced or crossed borders for myriad reasons.
