Stacie Swain [+-]
University of Victoria
Stacie A. Swain is a PhD student in Political Science with a certificate in Indigenous Nationhood at the University of Victoria, in Lekwungen territories. Her research considers Indigenous ceremony and political authority in public spaces and institutions at the intersection of political science, religious studies, and Indigenous and settler colonial studies.


As part of the Working With Culture on the Edge series, this volume pairs early career scholars with members of Culture on the Edge, to explore how social actors identify themselves through their practices and associations. The book is arranged in a series of articles and commentaries that all press the model of seeing what we usually call identity as the result of a series of identifications—actions and circumstances that enable us to understand ourselves as related to others in specific ways. Changing relations result in changing senses of identity. With an introduction and substantive theoretical afterword, the book’s brief main chapters make it an ideal conversation-started in classes or primer for those wishing to rethink how we normally talk about identity.
