Thank you for taking the time to visit my web site.

If you are a fellow faculty member with shared research interests, I look forward to connecting with you.

If you are a graduate or undergraduate student interested in learning more about my research, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

If you applying for a postdoctoral fellowship and you have broad interests in care/work/consumption, gender and sexualities, parental leave, embodiment, new materialisms, visual methods, feminist research, or varied qualitative methodologies, do contact me to discuss the possibility of considering Brock University as a home for your post doctoral work. We have excellent facilities and space for postdoctoral fellows and a new Social Justice Research Institute that provides an exciting and collegial environment.

If you are a journalist, I am currently not doing media interviews as I am on sabbatical until January 2015.

hello, my name is Elida and I am looking for options to continue my academic interests. Briefly, I studied my BA in Mexico, my master’s degree at Queen’s University and my PhD at The University of Western Ontario. So I am not new to Canada even though I am Mexican.
When I finished my PhD program I started working in a small University in Mexico and ever since I had to focus in other fields that are not my area (Children & moral values). I am trying to establish some contact with you because my fields of study are women, gender, and after living in Mexico for some time, I have some interest in the hours spent at work.
I don’t really know how to compete/request a postdoc or something similar. So for the time being, I believe that I need to establish some contact and communication with you.
thank you

Hello Andrea,

How are you? My name is Mary Anne Bishop and I am the community manager for a documentary about Breadwinner wives (and Stay-at-home Fathers) called The Big Flip.

In addition to researching all the different and incredible experts in the field, we are also doing an online series called, When the Big Flip gets Tough. Sharing with the community about the reality and struggles that fathers do face when their wives out earn their husbands as well as the implications that dads face when they are the primary caretaker of their children. A subject that I am certain you have a wealth of information on.

Would you be available for a brief interview Q&A for our series? I know there is great learning for us in the work you are doing with parents and the big questions you are asking about dads and we would love for you to share that with our breadwinner wives and stay at home dads!

Thank you and let me know if you have anymore questions and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

All My Best,
Mary Anne

Dear Madam,

I am beginning a doctoral research on fathering and masculinities within low-income household (and their network) in the South Peruvian Andes, working with Prof. Laura Merla at the UCL (Belgium). I read your book and several of your articles. They inspired me a lot. Laura told me that maybe you would travel to Europe this summer. If it is so, would you have one hour for me? I would be really glad to exchange with you, as I work from a feminist perspective, with qualitative methods and really interested in visual ones.

With my best regards,

Mathilde Van Drooghenbroeck
