About Me

Jennifer Levin Bonder is a Fulbright Visiting Scholar at the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies. Her research and teaching fields are Canadian history, American foreign policy, and international relations. Her forthcoming dissertation examines the Foreign Investment Review Agency (FIRA), a policy experiment during Pierre Trudeau’s time in office created to screen the foreign acquisition of Canadian firms and establishment of new business enterprises in Canada. It is emblematic of the economic nationalist and protectionist debates that have coursed throughout the history of both countries. Jennifer holds fellowships with The Bill Graham Centre for Contemporary International History at the Munk School of Global Affairs and Public Policy and Massey College. She speaks English & French, hails from the nickel capital of the world, and is interested in all Canada-U.S. relations from border issues to candy diplomacy.
