Description of research/teaching activities

My research focuses on learning in social action and knowledge production in activist/social movement milieus. I am interested in examining issues of power, knowledge and social relations in local and transnational community organizing/NGO/trade union/social movement networks, and histories, knowledge and theory ‘from below’. I explore questions of education, development, social justice and resistance through a critical, interdisciplinary, anti-colonial lens which connects theory to practice. I also work on immigrant and migrant labour issues. My research and teaching commitments are balanced with, and informed by involvement in community and social justice activities, such as the Immigrant Workers Centre, Montreal, for which I am a board member.

I am currently the holder of three grants. Firstly, I am principal investigator on a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) standard research grant, ‘Exploring the role of activist research non-governmental organizations (NGOs) in research and knowledge production for social action’.  I also hold a SSHRC Connection Grant, entitled ‘Unfree labour? Struggles of migrant and immigrant workers in Canada’, and a Ministère de l'Enseignement supérieur, de la Recherche, de la Science et de la Technologie (MESRST) Fonds des services aux collectivités grant ‘Histoire et culture de la diaspora caribéenne au Québec: préparation d’outils éducatifs pour les intervenants jeunesses communautaires’, in partnership with le Centre international de documentation et d’information haïtienne, caribéenne et afro-canadienne (CIDIHCA), Montreal.  (You can hear an interview about this project here).

I was also a collaborator (with Jill Hanley, McGill School of Social Work) on the Ministère de l'Éducation, du Loisir et du Sport (MELS) Fonds des services aux collectivités grant (2011-2013) ‘Les droits sociaux des travailleurs migrants en régions : un projet de développement de compétences des intervenants communautaires ‘, in partnership with the Immigrant Workers Centre/Centre des travailleurs et travailleuses immigrant(e)s, Montreal.

I serve as Board Member/North America Regional Representative, Research Committee on Labour Movements (RC44), International Sociological Association. From 2011-2013, I served as co-editor of the McGill Journal of Education. I am on the global spokescouncil and a regional editor for Interface: a journal for and about social movements, and sit on the editorial boards of the journals Labour, Capital and Society, WorkingUSA: The journal of labor and society, Studies in Political Economy, and Socialist Studies

I am also a research associate with the Centre for Education Rights and Transformation (CERT), in the Faculty of Education, at the University of Johannesburg, South Africa.

I co-organized the most recent New Voices in Labour Studies conference held at L'Université du Québec à Montréal in 2012. Throughout the academic year, I also organize two series of brown bag lunch seminars in the Department of Integrated Studies in Education. These are: (a) the “Meet the Neighbours !" seminar series on community education, research, knowledge production and social change with community educators, organizers and practitioners; and (b) the "Globalization, Education and Change" series which features interdisciplinary perspectives related to this topic from local and international scholars, thinkers and educators.

A co-edited collection (with Adrian Smith , Department of Law and Legal Studies, Carleton University) entitled ‘Unfree labour? Struggles of migrant and immigrant workers in Canada’, is forthcoming with Fernwood Publishing. My single-authored manuscript, entitled ‘Activist learning, knowledge and research in contemporary social movements’, has been submitted for publication and is under contract with University of Toronto Press.

I am working on a co-edited collection (with Mondli Hlatshwayo, Centre for Education Rights and Transformation, University of Johannesburg), provisionally entitled ‘Just Work? Migrant workers, globalization and resistance’, which is now under contract with Pluto Press. I have also commenced work on a co-authored manuscript (with Radha D’Souza, School of Law, University of Westminster), provisionally entitled ‘Searching for democracy, resisting imperialism’.

I am on sabbatical leave until 31 December 2014.
