Bronwyn Dobchuk-Land is a PhD candidate in the Department of Sociology at the City University of New York (CUNY) Graduate Center. Her research focuses on the range of social, political, and cultural forces involved in constructing populations as objects of control. Her dissertation is an analysis of crime prevention policy and programming in the Canadian Province of Manitoba from the perspectives of policy-makers and community-based organizations charged with its implementation, and in the context of the history of political struggle over the management of Indigenous youth. She is particularly interested in how left-wing and liberal social welfare programming and criminal justice reforms can inadvertently contribute to strengthening carceral and colonial infrastructure. Bronwyn has been active in organizing around police brutality and prison abolition in Manitoba. She is currently working at the University of Winnipeg in the Department of Criminal Justice.
