Research interests
Michelle Stewart teaches in the area of social justice and research methods. She received her PhD in Anthropology from the University of California Davis in 2011 where she focused on political and legal anthropology.  Her dissertation research explored contemporary policing practices in Canada with attention to programs and training that rely on collaborations between community, police and other agencies. She has had this work presented in articles in Contemporary Justice Review and M/C. She is currently revising this work into a book namuscript entitled Pedagogies of the State: Capture, Collaboration and Contestation in Late Neoliberalism.

Her current research expands on her interest in the anthropology of the state to include medical anthropology with attention to Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) where she investigates how FASD is understood in particular communities of practice. The first phase of the project focused on the ways that police understant and mobilize understandings of FASD. The second phase of her research will turn attention to the ways in which advocates and mentors mobilize health information about FASD in various settings (including social services, criminal justice, health, education and community settings). Her research team has created a publicly-available resource page focused on disseminating research findings as well as FASD material for front-line workers with a peer-reviewed article forthcoming.
