Thank you for taking the time to visit my web site!
Here are a few recent events to share:
I have recently been working with two colleagues, Dr. Lindsey McKay and Dr. Sophie Mathieu, to bring attention to class inequalities in parental leave and to consult with unions, labour groups and the federal government on these issues. We also highlight the lack of attention to, and national data on, Indigenous Canadian families and their access to care policies. You can find some of our recent publications, presentations, Op Eds here on the Parental Leave section of this web site.
I also pleased to share news from recent events, which I helped to bring to Brock University:
The 33rd Annual Qualitative Analysis Conference: Visual Methods and Visual Ethnographies was held at Brock University, May 11-13, 2016.
Three journals are currently in progress from this symposium and plans are in place for next year’s conference at McMaster. More details soon.
October 15-16, 2015: I recently co-hosted (with postdoctoral fellows Robyn Lee, Lindsey McKay, and Alana Cattapan), the Consuming Intimacies Symposium at Brock University. Funded by the Brock Social Justice Research Institute, we are now completing a special issue of Studies in Social Justice. I will post links to this online journal later in 2016.
