The Cultural Studies Graduate Program is thrilled to offer our congratulations to PhD candidate Yasmine Djerbal who is this year’s recipient of the prestigious Jean Royce Fellowship. This fellowship, established in memory of Jean I. Royce (BA’30, LLD’68, Queen's University Registrar), is awarded annually by the Queen's University Alumnae Association to a woman graduate of Queen's University for a year of study and research that contributes to the advancement of knowledge, contributes to society, or allows creative expression. After completing an MA in Gender Studies in 2014, Yasmine joined the Cultural Studies Program for a Ph.D., and continued working under the supervision of Pr. Katherine McKittrick. Now in her final year, Yasmine's research investigates how radicalization & terrorist narratives are used to erode citizenship rights of Muslims in Canada and France. Specifically, she looks at how the two countries oversee, read, and manage Muslims in relation to secularism and 'war on terror' legislation.
