About Grace McWilliam
I am an impassioned student deeply engaged in the multifaceted realm of social and political science. At the heart of my academic pursuits lies an ardent exploration of critical theory, where scholars like Foucault, Fanon, Mbembe, Tyler and Rodney build transformative insights.
My scholarly interests are wide-ranging, encompassing a nuanced understanding of anti-colonialism and its enduring impact on global dynamics. The urgency of global issues fuels my exploration of global apartheid and necropolitics, where I scrutinise the intersections of power, race, and sovereignty in our interconnected world. My current extracurricular focuses are drug policy and refugee rights, through an intersectional lens with issues of race, class, and disability being considered. In the realm of disability studies, my focus extends to unravelling societal constructs that perpetuate ableism, pushing the boundaries of inclusivity and accessibility in my research. Simultaneously, I delve into the intricate dynamics of capital, exploring economic disparities and the role of capitalism in shaping global power structures.
When envisioning my future, I aspire to be the head researcher at a non-governmental organisation (NGO), where I can translate my academic passion into impactful initiatives, contributing meaningfully to social justice causes and transformative change.
