Past Visiting Scholars



Jasjit Sangha recently completed her PhD from the Department of Adult Education and Counseling Psychology at OISE, University of Toronto. She strives to make linkages between academic theory and lived experience by infusing arts-informed research methods and auto-ethnography into her work. Her current research is centred on adult learning and spirituality, transformative learning, and mothering/step-mothering. She is currently working on a book exploring the complexity of South Asian Mothering.



Jessica Fields visited the CWSE during her sabbatical as a professor at San Francisco State University, to work on her second book, For That Time: Intimate Possibilities in HIV Education and Research for Incarcerated Women of Color. She is a member of the Research Faculty at the Centre for Research and Gender and Sexuality at SF State, and works with HIV educators in the San Francisco Department of Public Health.

Csilla Kalocsai completed her PhD in Anthropology at Yale University and joined the CWSE as a Visiting Scholar to continue her research on gender and work in the formerly socialist states of East-Central Europe. She examines how transnational corporations are able to shape the knowledge and experiences of young professionals in the neoliberal system, and how gender is stratified in these businesses. 



Hae-Joung Lee is a PhD Candidate at Seoul National University in South Korea, focusing on gender and education and the sociology of education. The research she worked on at the CWSE asks “What are the identities of intellectual women who underwent higher education in Korea in the 1970s?”  She suggests that Korean women’s education under the colonial rule was highly paradoxical.  It reproduced the existing gender system, but that very system was threatened by women’s education. Because education for women could help shape women’s thinking, intellectual women could theoretically go beyond the role which they had been given.



Karla Kral holds a PhD in Sociocultural Anthropology from the University of Kansas, where she focused on Women, Kinship, and Transnationalism in the Meixcan Borderlands: A Case Study of Chihuahua, Mexico. Her research interests include gender and education; transnational migration and education; women and migration; globalization and transnational education; and cultural boarderlands. She visited the CWSE from the Universidad de Colima, Facultad de Pedagogía, Meixco, to do new work on Gender and the Repercussions of Gestation, Maternity, and Paternity in University Students’ Academic Life. 

Hua Yin (Rebekka), Project Officer, Foreign Affairs Office, Harbin Engineering University, China. Rebekka looked at the Study of Global Women in Management of Colleges and Universities while she was at the CWSE.
