Humanities, Social Sciences & Social Justice Education (HSSSJE)
Abigail Bakan, Professor and Chair, HSSSJE
"I am thrilled to be joining the Department of Humanities, Social Sciences and Social Justice Education at OISE. I have a longstanding commitment to social justice research and pedagogy; just the name of the department alone is so compelling. HSSSJE has outstanding faculty and students, and I'm looking forward to advancing our shared interests. There are great opportunities ahead – in terms of formal educational training in social justice, in social justice research, and of course in the vast arena of public and popular education."
Formerly the department of Sociology and Equity Studies in Education (SESE) and the department of History and Philosophy (H&P), the NEW department of Humanities, Social Sciences & Social Justice Education (HSSSJE) now vibrantly represents the multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary humanities and social sciences in education of these two departments.
