Bio/Research

I received my PhD from the interdisciplinary Centre for the Study of Religion, at the University of Toronto, in 2001. My MA is from the University of Winnipeg (1992). I joined the Department of Sociology as a full-time faculty member in 2001.

My research is focused on various social justice issues and movements, often as they are related to religion (and especially Roman Catholicism). I am interested in the social and political implications of Catholic social teaching and liberation theologies, and am also interested in both official and popular expressions of Catholic thought and practice in relation to older adults and aging. Another area of my research involves the intersections of aging, gender and activism, particularly as they have been embodied in the social movement activists known as the Raging Grannies.

Alongside these research pursuits, I am very interested in the scholarship of teaching and learning, and in experimenting with innovative ways to engage students in the undergraduate classroom.
