It explored the tensions between approaches that interpret National Socialism as an anti-modern phenomenon and those that interpret it as a product of modernity. It paid a particular attention to the relationship between geopolitical contexts, politics of memory and paradigm shifts in the social sciences.Her doctoral research focuses on nationalism, right-wing populist movements and anti-immigration reactions in contemporary Europe.Sabrina is on the governing board of the European Communtiy Studies Association - Canada' Young Researchers Network and is an Associate student at the Jean Monnet Centre Montréal.
