Publics and Social Justice

Canada is being called on to engage critically with our collectively held notions of citizenship, publics and belongings as one step toward ensuring social justice for diverse populations. The Publics and Social Justice Research Collective fosters research, education, and cross-disciplinary discussion and collaboration on historical and contemporary inequities as these inform our diverse experiences of belongings, both local and national, while also complicating the notion of belonging itself. 

This cluster's researchers conduct multi-/inter-disciplinary research in a wide variety of areas including Indigenous settler-relations and histories, feminism and the politics of decolonization, reproductive and environmental justice, critical security studies, memory and visual culture, religious and diasporic identities and belongings, Black Canadian cultural production, immigration and refugee policy and citizenship, citizenship education, Caribbean religions in transnational contexts, African diaspora, religion and migration, gendered violence,  gender and diversity studies.
