Julie Paquette

Julie Paquette holds a doctorate in political science from the University of Ottawa and completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the Université de Montréal (2012-2014) at the Center for Intermediate Research on Arts, Letters and Techniques, and at the Canadian Center for German and European Studies, where she interrogated the question of new fascism in the thinking of the intellectual, poet and filmmaker Pier Paolo Pasolini (1922-1975). Her most recent research focuses on the resurgence of fascism in contemporary time periods; the ethics surrounding new technologies as well as the intercession between art, ethics and politics, based on scandal theories and a conception of freedom of expression as non-domination. She is the author of “Theater and Marxist heresies: Pasolini must be what the Pasolini is not”, in The theaters of Marx, edited by O. Neveux and published in 2019 at the University Presses of Rouen. She also published “From Disciplinary Society to Algorithmic Society: Ethical Considerations around the Big Data Challenge” in Issue 9 of the French Journal for Media Research.

Assistant Professor at the School of Ethics, Social Justice and Public Service at Saint Paul University in Ottawa, she is co-director of the Center for Research in Public Ethics and Governance (CRÉPuG) and a member of the board of the Mauril Bélanger Social Innovation Workshop.
