Laura Madokoro Receives Early Researcher Awards Program Funding:

“Carleton University History Professor Laura Madokoro has been awarded funding through the Ontario government’s prestigious Early Researcher Awards Program for her research project titled ‘Disaster Migration at Home and Abroad: A Transnational History of Canadian Relief Efforts (1900 – present).’ […] Madokoro’s research program, The Disaster Lab, explores the history of displacement, disasters and migration. In an innovative turn, the program looks at the history of disaster relief in the Canadian context through a transnational lens, investigating the relationship between domestic relief efforts and the growth of international humanitarianism, beginning with a critical investigation of data from the Canadian Disaster Database (CDD).”
