Research Overview

My current writing involves gendering and racializing accounts of professional and science education, including my previous work on the influence of the pharmaceutical industry on curricula. My current research focusses on processes of minoritization in Canadian postsecondary institutions. For example, minoritized faculty may be given nontenured positions and/or devalued aspects of curricula may be taught by nontenured faculty.

The general field within which I work is the sociology of knowledge which investigates the social construction of science and technology and which critiques both the context and practice of science/technology/professions. This critical approach has led to my current interests in non-dominant ways of knowing, including Aboriginal thought, alternative medicine, spirituality, and environmentalism and equity as well as to interests in the social psychology of epistemological differences and the development and expression of critical consciousness in advocacy/activism/subversion/resistance.
