Dr. Ogasawara Awarded Banting Postdoctoral Research Fellowship

Congratulations to Dr. Midori Ogasawara, who has been awarded a Banting Postdoctoral Research Fellowship for 2019-2021. The Fellowship will be held at the University of Ottawa, under the supervision of Professor Val Steeves, Department of Criminology. Midori defended her PhD in the Department of Sociology at Queen’s in 2018. The dissertation concerns the identification system developed by Japanese occupying forces, that enabled surveillance and control in Manchuria, China, in the 1930s. She has also interviewed Edward Snowden and Mark Klein, US whistleblowers, and hopes to continue this work, examining the legalizing of once-illegal surveillance, in her postdoc.
