Contest Entry: Josh Labove

November 12, 2013

We're sharing the contest entries from our Show Us Your Research grad student photo competition.

This photo, taken in Ottawa, is from Josh Labove, Department of Geography, who writes:

I am researching the Canadian federal policy and laws that go in to the creation and maintenance of the Canada-US border. I took this image on my way back from presenting some of my work at the US Embassy around the corner.

The image demonstrates the questions of fixity and mobility that I examine at the border--the timeless Parliament Hill buildings in the background and a rush hour bus in the foreground.

I am fortunate that I get to have such an up-close and hands-on experience to Canadian lawmaking and policy and my research draws me closer to capital and the many ways it produces ideas about space through law.
