Research information:

Since 2015, Dr. Leroux has been studying the changing dynamics of white, French-descendant identities in the 21st century, particularly as it pertains to increasing claims to "Indigenous" identities among this group. His book, Distorted Descent: White Claims to Indigenous Identity, was selected as one of the ten most influential books published by the University of Manitoba Press in the past decade. His research continues to push the boundaries in the study of white identities, and as such, he is widely sought after as a public speaker on matters related to contemporary forms of settler colonialism.
