PAST RESEARCHERS

Abigail Myerscough

With a background in Gender and Women’s Studies, Myerscough is pursuing her MA in Canadian and Indigenous Studies at Trent University. Her research investigates the Ontario elder care system, specifically interrogating women’s experiences. Through her university experience, Myerscough has become politicized not only around issues of aging and gender inequality in the era of austerity, but also about her own positioning as a young woman from a “mixed” Indigenous-settler background. She brings this growing politicization to her own research.
