Lynne Milgram awarded SSHRC Insight Grant

 

Tuesday, February 2, 2016 - 5:00am

Faculty Member Dr. Lynne Milgram joins Dr. Leonora Angeles (UBC) as a Co-Applicant on the SSHRC Insight-funded project – “CANADA-PHILIPPINES: Alternative Transnational Economies Project” (ATE) – lead by PI Dr. Philip Kelly of York University (Geography). 

The project will engage faculty, graduate students, and community and NGO organizations in both Canada and the Philippines to develop substantive case studies (articles, book chapters, edited volumes, workshops and films) that investigate and analyze transnational alternative (other-than-capital) economic practices.

Professor Milgram's project will investigate two case studies of small-scale entrepeneurship and trade that operate between the Philippines and Canada ­ namely, small-scale, self-employed Filipino-Canadian businesses in Canada and similarly-sized Filipino businesses in Baguio City, the Philippines that maintain transnational linkages. These case studies will be used to investigate initial questions that support the larger project:

  1. What are the alternative economic logics that motivate and define these transnational entrepreneurial activities?
  2. How do power relations based on class, gender, race etc. influence the sustainability and effectiveness of instituting alternative transnational economic and entrepreneurial activities? 
  3. How does state/government policy in Canada and the Philippines affect the extent to which self-employed transnational entrepreneurs can activate and/or combine alternative with mainstream conventional economic activities? 
  4. Are these activities sustainable in the long term or to whatextent may these activities be overpowered by conventional economic practice? 

SSHRC Insight grants recognize research excellence, and provide stable, long-term support for research initiatives that further our collective understanding. The grants enable scholars to address complex issues pertaining to individuals and societies.
