Critical Social Theory at McGill

Critical Social Theory at McGill is an interdisciplinary research group at McGill University, founded in 2013 by four core members across the Faculty of Arts - Gavin Walker (History), Hasana Sharp (Philosophy), William Clare Roberts (Political Science), and Yves Winter (Political Science). In 2017, Sandeep Banerjee (English) joined, bringing our core membership to five, representing four major departments in Arts. The group organizes research projects in critical theory across the humanities and social sciences. Our members specialise in topics in critical theory, Marx and Marxist theory, postcolonial studies, comparative literature, feminist theory, political theory, philosophy, and the history of social and political thought.

CST@M sponsors conferences, talks, seminars, and events, in addition to organizing internal research projects. 

Our core members are actively engaged in collective research projects funded by the Fonds de recherche du Québec - Société et culture and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada, along with numerous other McGill and external funding bodies.
