Anastasia is сurrently writing a monograph, Law, Migration and Precarious Labour: Ecotechnics and the Question of Legal Subjectivity (with Routledge) that explores the intersection of immigration law and labour law in the UK and the function of precarity, both in employment and migration statuses. Anastasia is also developing a research project on transformation, transition and change in post-revolution and uprising. This work looks specifically at Ukraine and post-Soviet states with the aim to re-think a jurisprudence of change and (social) movement drawing on anarchic thinking and de-colonial thought.
Additional research projects include writing and field work on 'new ethnohistory' with the Sto:lo Nation, Canada; and exploring notions of indigeneity, citizenship and the international; and critical pedagogy/methodology in teaching law. Anastasia's interests further extend to working with artists on various initiatives involving performing arts and law/ legal methodologies. This creative work builds on her previous experience with contemporary dance and theatre companies across Canada and professional dance training at the Ottawa School of Dance.
Anastasia holds degrees from the University of Saskatchewan, Canada (2004), York University Canada (MA, 2008), Osgoode Hall Law School, Canada (LLM with specialisation in Immigration Law, 2009, funded by SSHRC) and the School of Law Birkbeck College, University of London (PhD Law, 2015, funded by SSHRC).
