Dr. Andrea Hasenbank is a postdoctoral fellow and contract lecturer at the University of Alberta. Edmonton-born, she is deeply engaged with the history and politics of Alberta, building on those connections as a political advisor to the provincial government between 2015 and 2019, and through ongoing collaborations with community organizations such as the Alberta Labour History Institute. Andrea has published on working-class cultures and print, including radical periodicals and manifestos of the 1930s. Her current research probes the conjuncture of Canadian politics and literature, examining the intersection of print, readers, surveillance, and the state in postwar Canada.
