Carol-Lynne D'Arcangelis does research in the areas of Indigenous - non-Indigenous relationships, with a focus on the tensions and possibilities for non-colonizing solidarity between Indigenous women and non-Indigenous women across Turtle Island (North America). Her work is interdisciplinary, drawing on a wide range of literatures including Indigenous feminisms, critical race theory (and critical whiteness studies), settler and post-colonial studies, and increasingly, cultural studies and theories of (public) affect. More specifically, she is interested in exploring the ways in which modernity/modern subjectivity (often referred to in shorthand as liberal individualism) can be said to retain a grip on social/power relations within and across social groupings. Her work has a distinct auto-ethnographic component in the way in which it reflects (and reflects upon) her activism as a white feminist ally to raise awareness about the missing and murdered Indigenous women across Canada. Prior to joining the academy, Carol-Lynne lived and worked extensively in Central America in the areas of social justice and human rights.
