As a former meat cutter in a grocery store, Nick draws on his previous experience to guide his research and interests in the production process, neoliberalism, and deindustrialisation. When he is not conducting research, he is either cycling or doing photography.
Packing Up?: The Technological Revolution of Meat Packing on the North American Plains, 1960-1980.
Nick’s research engages with meat packinghouse workers in Manitoba and Iowa during the IBP Revolution and explores the ways that workers confronted the transition to neoliberalism and deindustrialization. Using an extensive oral history collection found in Winnipeg and Iowa City, his transnational study compares the experience between these two meatpacking regions.
