About Phil Henderson

I'm a near-completed PhD candidate in Political Science at the University of Victoria, with an upcoming postdoctoral appointment at Carleton University's Institute of Political Economy. My research interests sit at the intersections of Canadian Politics, Political Theory, Indigenous Politics, and (increasingly) Labour Studies. My newest research programme investigates the interrelationships between Indigenous land/water defenders and (self-)organized workers in present-day Canada.

Phil Henderson is a SSHRC Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Carleton University’s Institute of Political Economy where his research interests focus on the interrelations between Indigenous land/water defenders and organized labour in what’s presently known as Canada. More information can be found at his personal website.
