Gerald Kernerman (B.A., Toronto; M.A., UBC; Ph.D., York) is an Associate Professor of Political Science at York University, where he is a Faculty Scholar at the Centre for Refugee Studies and a member of the Graduate Programs in Political Science and Social & Political Thought. Among other publications, Professor Kernerman is the author of Multicultural Nationalism: Civilizing Difference, Constituting Community (UBC Press, 2005) and co-editor (with Philip Resnick) of Insiders & Outsiders: Alan Cairns and the Reshaping of Canadian Citizenship (UBC Press, 2005). His interdisciplinary research and teaching explores such topics as the politics of frontiers, borders and sites of exception; the relationship between nationalism, liberalism and multiculturalism; the contemporary clashes of religion, sexuality, and gender in liberal democratic contexts; critical approaches to the study of leaders and leadership; and the development of alternative, student-centred, pedagogical practices. Previously, he has been a Visiting Fellow at the Refugee Studies Centre at Oxford University, a Canada-U.S. Fulbright Scholar at the Walt Whitman Center for the Culture and Politics of Democracy at Rutgers University and a SSHRC Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Political Science at the University of Toronto. As well, he is a member of the new Canadian Association for Refugee and Forced Migration Studies, which he co-founded, a research lead of the Refugee Research Network, which he helped create, and an Associate Director of York’s Centre for Refugee Studies, which he helped rebuild.
