"A New Approach to the Popular Press in China: Gender and Cultural Production, 1904-1937""


The primary objective of the project is to restore complexity to early-twentieth-century Chinese history by liberating that history from its own reductive discourses on the failings of tradition and the promise of modernity. The database has been created to facilitate research on the project's instrument and object of investigation: the commercial periodical press, a new medium that dominated the contemporary print market and became one of the prime sites for the dissemination of knowledge and the production of culture in early twentieth century China. In particular, our focus is on four seminal women's or gendered journals-a key genre of the new media-published between 1904 and 1937. They include Nüzi shijie (Women's World, 1904-07), Funü shibao (The Women's Eastern Times, 1911-17), Funü zazhi (The Ladies' Journal, 1915-31), and Linglong (Elegance, 1931-37).

"Quotidian Concerns: Everyday Knowledge and the Rise of the Common Reader in China, 1860-1940"


This project examines the processes of knowledge production and circulation that shaped modern China. The crucial eight decades it investigates encompassed China's protracted transition from Imperial to Republican rule, and from insular dynasty to global nation. They also witnessed an explosion of print arguably comparable in its social impact to the current Internet age. This project, an international collaborative effort that includes researchers in Europe, East Asia, and North America, is the first to devise methods for studying this burgeoning world of print that will allow us to penetrate the level of everyday knowledge, access the habits of mind that underpinned these historic and global shifts, and relate the lessons of China's early information age to today.

'Talented' citizens?: study-migration policies in traditional immigration and higher education destinations


This is the preliminary phase of a larger project on high skilled labour migration (including postsecondary international student migration), and the shifting nature of national membership in our world dominated by knowledge economic discourses. In this phase a comparative review of various study-migration policies of Canada, Australia, USA, UK and Germany, all introduced in response to the global race for professional talent, will be conducted. This review will build the foundation for the second phase of the study where I plan to explore postsecondary international students’ experience of navigating and making sense of the increasing entanglement between higher education and immigration policies of the aforementioned states, which construct them as 'knowledge diplomats' and 'ideal immigrants' but also maintains a gap between their economic welcome and political disenfranchisement.

2018-2019. SSHRC. Indigenous Research Capacity and Reconciliation - Connection Grants Canada. Principal Investigator. Spirit and Intent: The Yukon Umbrella Final Agreement Today and Tomorrow


“Spirit and Intent: The Yukon Umbrella Final Agreement Today and Tomorrow” (SP&I) is a knowledge mobilization project that consists of two phases: Phase 1 (November 2018-May 2019) is the focus of this grant application because it involves community outreach and engagement within the Yukon in the form of workshops and meetings to ascertain what Yukoners (in particular the parties to the agreements along with implementers and youth) want to know about the agreements, the challenges they have experienced and best practices. Phase 2, which will occur following the end of the grant period (May 2019-November 2019) sees this knowledge mobilization project culminate in a two and a half day conference in the Yukon that will bring together and feature original and current day negotiators, government leaders, Elders, youth and local experts – along with professors and students, investors and industry leaders – to explore, examine and explain the Umbrella Final Agreement (the UFA was the framework for negotiating individual Yukon First Nations Final and Self-Government Agreements), and the resulting Yukon First Nations Final and Self-Government Agreements. The lead Yukon-based organizer is Judy Gingell (Kwanlin Dun First Nation) and the applicant and institutional lead is Gabrielle Slowey (York University Robarts Centre). In addition to a focus on education and working in collaboration with Indigenous knowledge holders and Elders in this project, this project and team aims to identify new challenges and share best practices and lessons learned in the process of implementing the terms of the Umbrella Final Agreement.

2SLGBTQ+ Ontarians’ experiences with social assistance: Conducting preliminary research to nurture partnerships in the area of 2SLGBTQ+ poverty and health


Two-spirit, lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, and queer (2SLGBTQ+) people experience both health
disparities and economic inequities relative to their heterosexual and cisgender (non-trans) peers.
Although poverty is widely understood to be a critically important determinant of health, few studies
have investigated the relationships between poverty and health in 2SLGBTQ+ populations, or the
possible social and structural relationships that sustain these inequities. Our project will address this
research gap, and in doing so will build an emerging multidisciplinary network, the Canadian Coalition
Against 2SLGBTQ+ Poverty (CCA2P). The research team is led by representatives from 2SLGBTQ+
community organizations and academic researchers from Canadian universities, and includes
community advocates and research trainees. Project activities will aim to a) support coalition-building
between academics, organizations and community members working on issues of 2SLGBTQ+ rights
and poverty, working to build a national multisectoral partnership; b) collaborate on communitydriven
research that examines 2SLGBTQ+ peoples’ experiences accessing social assistance in Ontario,
a community-identified research priority; c) meaningfully engage 2SLGBTQ+ people who identify as
having lived experience of poverty throughout research and coalition-building activities; and d)
collaborate on a funding proposal, informed by our preliminary data, to support national research and
partnership-building on this topic. By enabling a more fulsome understanding of 2SLGBTQ+ poverty
from diverse stakeholders, these partnership activities ultimately aim to address the economic and
associated health inequities currently experienced by 2SLGBTQ+ people in Canada.

A Romantic Natural History


My new book project, A Romantic Natural History, explores how historians, philosophers and writers drew upon contemporary natural histories, even as their works inspired a re-imagining of nature and history. The turn of the nineteen century was marked by a complex interface between human and natural histories. Because natural history was occupied with questions of origins and transformations, with the generation and degeneration of not only plants and animals but also human beings, its projects of investigating the natural world and improving the natural economy were inseparable from questions of social, moral and religious import.

A Romantic Natural History is interdisciplinary in method. It draws upon the works of naturalists and scientists, writers and artists, and philosophers and historians during the Romantic period. It is informed by recent scholarship in the history of science, history of philosophy, cultural history, studies in romanticism and material cultural studies. The book is organized as a series of essay on specific natural history objects and their larger significances. Examples include: hybrid creatures troubling categories of classification; infusoria populating experimental and speculative accounts of spontaneous generation; fossils as hybrids of the living and extinct; sensitive plants crossing plant-animal divides; Caucasians and their others; quinine as a new world remedy for colonial ailments; grafted plants; electric fish and galvanic batteries as models for one another; magnets as markers of the duplicity physical and mental powers; automaton as animated machines; hieroglyphics as natural languages; Grecian artifacts as exemplars of natural genius. The objects are selected because of their amphibious character. They do not fit neatly into simple categories of plants, animals and mineral. They are not simply understood as natural, artificial or cultural. They are material entities with semiotic significance. They were regarded at the time as crossing the boundaries of kinds of things and thus opening up broad epistemic, historical and cultural questions.

An Analysis of Impacts of Downstream Infrastructure on Environmentally Friendly Product Designs


This project has two long-term objectives: 1. To develop models that address the impacts of downstream infrastructures in recycled end-of-life product operations on a number of important variables, including manufacturers’ investment in product design changes, manufacturers’ and recyclers’ profits, prices that end-users face, and social welfare. 2. To develop models that address the interaction between downstream infrastructures and different product generations associated with product design changes. The development of environmentally friendly product designs is widely recognized as an important characteristic of an environmentally sustainable economy. In achieving this goal, effective incorporation of Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) is expected to lead to product design improvement and effective recycling, especially in complex and durable products such as electrical and electronic equipment and vehicles. The potential benefits associated with EPR laws are well understood in the EU and in Japan. Unfortunately, governmental institutions and industrial companies in Canada seem to be lagging behind in implementing EPR laws. Concerning the implementation of EPR, a fundamental question arises: How can policy-makers create incentives that encourage product design changes? To answer this question, one cannot ignore the impacts of downstream infrastructures on manufacturers’ operations as a whole. The suggested research framework will take into account important characteristics of recycling activities of end-of-life products that have not been included in previous work. Examples of these characteristics include economies of scale in recycling costs and existence of a non-profit organization that allocates products to recyclers.

An Exploration of Race, Gender and Sexuality in the LGBTQ+ community in Trinidad and Tobago


While there is a growing corpus of research on homophobia and LGBTQ+ rights activism in Jamaica, research on the rest of the Anglo-Caribbean remains very limited, despite the branding of the region as exceptionally queer/trans/homo-phobic. In addition, few of the existing scholarly studies explore gender and sexuality from the perspective of LGBTQ+ members’ experiences. This project will explore the politics of identity – specifically regarding the intersections of race, gender and sexuality – within the LGBTQ+ community in Trinidad and Tobago. It will foreground the experiences and voices of out LGBTQ+ folks, focusing on how they construct and negotiate their identities, relations and sense of community within the context of state-sponsored queer/trans/homo-phobia and the denial of non-normative gendered and sexual citizenship. This will simultaneously entail understanding the ways in which the LGBTQ+ community contests queer/trans/homo-phobic nationalism at institutional and cultural levels.

Application of machine learning algorithms to hydrological forecasting


Accumulated volumes of data on water quantity and quality coupled with meteorological data make data-driven analyses of water related problems an effective decision support tool for water resources management. The project is aimed at developing a framework for water resource assessment and management based on machine learning techniques. The framework relies on data which are routinely collected on stream watershed and become available to users almost in real time regime, e.g. water level or precipitation. The study will enhance the methodology and will form a basis for knowledge transfer activities by providing scientifically valid recommendations for improving black box models which can be integrated into early warning systems and used by local authorities for flood management, particularly, in watershed with rapidly changing land use.

Buddhism Across Boundaries: Subaltern, Plebeian and Peripheral Networks in Colonial Southeast Asia


Across Southeast Asia, Buddhist nationalism is on the rise, presenting Buddhist identity in exclusivist ethnic and national terms. Nowhere is this more apparent at the moment than in Arakan state in Myanmar, where hope of new political freedoms immediately gave way to violence against Muslims fueled by Buddhist nationalist rhetoric. The current identification between Buddhism and nation in Southeast Asia, however, emerged under colonialism out of a more diverse milieu of Buddhist identities at the turn of the twentieth century. In colonial Southeast Asia multiple transnational and multi-ethnic Buddhist identities flourished and, moreover, Buddhism was a medium of connection across boundaries. “Buddhism across Boundaries: Subaltern, Plebeian, and Peripheral Networks in Colonial Southeast Asia” will explore the history of Buddhism as a medium for identity, engagement, and collaboration beyond the late modern limitations of nation and ethnicity, through the study of disparate but effective networks of Buddhist patrons, organizers, and supporters between 1880 and 1920. It promises to open up a new understanding of the complexities of Buddhist transnational organizing and the ways in which religion served as a means for collaboration and affinity. This two-year collaborative project with Brian Bocking, University College, Cork and Laurence Cox, National University of Ireland Maynooth works from the margins and fringes, rather than the colonial and Buddhist centres, starting in the outlying port cities that saw great flux and interactions of cultures: Akyab in Arakan, Tavoy in Tenasserim and Penang in the Straits Settlements, and in minority and mobile cultures: Chinese in Rangoon, Shan in Bangkok, Sinhalese in Penang, Irish in Southeast Asia. This project steps back from the focus on monks to look at networks that facilitated the travel of ideas and gave birth to new identities and associations. The practice of Buddhism represented the visions of those who made it financially possible—the networks of sponsors, each with their own interpretations of what it should mean to be Buddhist and modern. Investigating the changing role and meaning of Buddhism in the colonial world allows us to ask: How did religion function as a vector of connection outside of the centralizing forces of colonial subjectivity and subsequent nationalism? How did promoting Buddhism make connections across ethnic, class, and cultural boundaries and between those on the various margins of empire—even as they continually reinvented what “Buddhism” and “religion” would mean in practice? How did Buddhism become a medium for resisting both colonialism and the centralizing forces of burgeoning nationalism and official monastic orthodoxy?

Calibrating Livelihood and the Gut: Australian Metabolism Science in Papua New Guinea (1960-1971)


Pacific Islanders have some of the highest rates of metabolic disease in the world. Often scientists attribute this to genetics and a transition to a processed food diet. My project presents another element in the regional and global history of how researchers understood metabolism at a time when global hunger, not obesity, was a concern. This metabolism research was also a precursor to microbiome research today.
In the 1960s, a team of Australian nutritionists travelled to Papua New Guinea (then an Australian colony) and compared the metabolisms of people who lived a subsistence lifestyle with those who worked for wages in towns, as well as White Australians in Australia. Subsistence livelihoods were of particular interest during the Cold War, as regional institutions, like the South Pacific Commission hoped that Pacific Islanders could transition to wage earners in capitalist economies.

As part of their research, these researchers collected and compared urine, expired air, breast milk and feces. The samples they could not analyze in the field, were sent back to a government lab at the Australian Institute of Anatomy (a leading national institution of the Australian Department of Health) in Canberra for analysis. These researchers cautiously published that in people practicing subsistence livelihoods, they had located gut microflora that would metabolise protein from nitrogen in the air. Their claims suggested that WHO universal standards of protein consumption might need to be changed to allow for differences between populations.

The objective of this research is to use historical methods and social theory to analyze metabolism research in Australian colonial nutrition science in the south western Pacific Islands. Within this 1960s research, I will document the scientific practices of the collection, storage and analysis of Pacific Islanders’ biological materials. I want to understand these technologies measuring metabolism as a means of how scientists calibrated the sexed, raced and age-related embodiment of food and waged or subsistence labour.

Four executive committee members of York University’s Centre for Refugee Studies (CFR) are co-applicants and collaborators in the Social Science and Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) Partnership Grant, titled “Civil society and the global refugee regime: Understanding and enhancing impact through the implementation of global refugee policy.” The project’s total budget is $3.5 million, with SSHRC contributing almost $2.5 million. The York researchers include: sociology Professor Christopher Kyriakides; geography and social science Professor Jennifer Hyndman; social science, and public policy and administration Professor Dagmar Soennecken; and, psychology Professor Michaela Hynie.
The seven-year partnership will foster collaboration with higher education institutions in seven countries and civil society organizations in Canada, Jordan, Lebanon, Kenya and Tanzania. The project team will study efforts to implement global refugee policy in diverse places, identify factors that impact implementation and identify how civil society can contribute to improved outcomes for refugees.
York students will benefit from opportunities generated by the grant since the project will train 96 graduate students over seven years to work with local academics, students, NGOs and refugees. To build research and practitioner capacity, the group will host annual summer institutes in concert with the Centre for Refugee Studies (CRS) Summer Course at York and Carleton University – both partner institutions in the grant – as well as train refugees and NGO workers in citizen journalism in the affected countries.

Civil Society and the Global Refugee Regime (LERRN), SSHRC, 2018-2025


LERRN aims to better understand and enhance the role of civil society in responding to the needs of refugees in the global south. Civil society plays a large role in developing innovative responses to refugee situations and has the power to be a driver of change within political communities.

The Partnership’s goal is to enhance the understandings of the global refugee regime and empower society to directly contribute to the improved function of the regime, thereby ensuring more predictable protection and solutions for refugees and enhancing their lived experience. The project officially launched in October 2018 and will run until December 2025.

LERRN is the Local Engagement Refugee Research Network. We are a team of researchers and practitioners committed to promoting protection and solutions with and for refugees. Our goal is to ensure that refugee research, policy and practice are shaped by a more inclusive, equitable and informed collective engagement of civil society. Through collaborative research, training, and knowledge-sharing, we aim to improve the functioning of the global refugee regime and ensure more timely protection and rights-based solutions for refugees.

Our work is focused in the global South, which hosts 85% of the world’s refugees, and responds to the needs and opportunities identified by our partners in major refugee-hosting countries.

Collection System Design, Strategy Choice and Financial Incentives for Product Recovery


Collection represents the first phase of product recovery operations. This research project addresses a methodology for selecting collection strategies by simultaneously optimizing the service area of each collection facility and the financial incentive provided by the collector for each returned product. We represent the collection system via a continuous model, and use a stochastic utility choice model to incorporate the customers’ return decisions. This enables us to model and analyze the collector firm’s profit function under drop-off and pick-up collection strategies, and establish the analytical properties of the optimal collection area and subsidy decisions under each strategy. We show that higher subsidies induce the collector to install less collection facilities under the drop-off strategy, but more facilities under the pick-up strategy. The impact of cost, product and market parameters on the financial subsidy and collection area size, as well as on the choice of the collection strategy is also haracterized. We identify the variable collection cost parameters and the amount of used products in the market area as the main determinants of the collection strategy choice, and illustrate our results with numerical examples.

CONFERENCE: Encounters in Canada: Contrasting Indigenous and Immigrant Perspectives


Indigenous peoples are the original caretakers of Canada, but their encounters with settlers have been marred by assimilation and territorial dispossession over hundreds of years. The result has been significant alienation between Indigenous peoples and Canadian governments. Conversely, immigrants to Canada, which for the purposes of this conference include early colonists, recent immigrants, refugees and displaced persons, have often viewed the country as a haven or land of opportunity. However, many are sorely unaware of Indigenous history, rights and contributions to Canada’s development. No people or community can speak for another; individual and group knowledge is intrinsic and internal. However, in keeping with the ideal of “mutual sharing” emphasized in the Royal Commission on Aboriginal Peoples, respect and trust can be fostered through shared difference. While the specific experiences of Indigenous peoples, immigrant communities, refugees and Canadian-born citizens are very different on many levels, connections can be developed through dialogue and reciprocity. Indigenous peoples as well as immigrant and refugee communities experience discrimination, racism, stigmatization and marginalization. These encounters represent a wider systemic problem in Canadian political, legal, sociocultural and historical contexts. Efforts to overcome exclusion can be built through increased awareness and knowledge-building, with support from allies. This conference aims to fill this gap in knowledge and will bring together leaders from government and the judiciary, legal scholars, academics and practitioners to formulate practical solutions. The primary objective is to build bridges – cultural, political, intellectual and social connections – between those who share the lands of what is now Canada. The underlying rationale of the conference stems from the fact that Canada is now shared by Indigenous peoples, descendants of early settlers and more recent immigrant and refugee communities. These communities encounter Canada in very different ways based on racial identity, ancestral heritage, cultural background, community belonging, language and spiritual practice. Bridging the chasm that exists between Indigenous peoples and all newcomers, whether early or contemporary immigrants or refugees, is urgently needed in order to end discrimination and achieve equitable quality of life for all who live in this country. To this end, the objective is to understand how Indigenous peoples and various immigrant groups experience their lives in Canada. How are the challenges they face different? Are there shared goals and experiences upon which to build future alliances to achieve improved quality of life in Canada?

Constitution-Making and the Emergence of the British North America Act, 1867


Although there is a considerable body of scholarship that focuses on Canadian Confederation, there is relatively little research on the making of the BNA Act, 1867. This project remedies this gap in the literature by undertaking the first comprehensive analysis of the emergence of the BNA Act, 1867. More specifically, it draws upon historical institutionalism to help explain the nature, origins and processes that led to its adoption. This study considers not only the architects' interests and goals in drafting Canada's first constitution, but it also assesses the institutional influences and constraints affecting its development in the decades prior to its adoption.

Countermeasure to supply chain disruptions in medical and pharmaceutical industries associated with COVID-19


The intended research project focuses on the supply chain disruptions that medical/pharmaceutical industries are currently facing in the Novel Coronavirus Outbreak, due to the suppliers’ strategic hoarding and consumers’ panic buying behavior under psychological and behavioral uncertainties. Specifically, this proposed research project explores: factors that delay the resilience of medical/pharmaceutical industries’ supply chain disruptions caused by the Novel Coronavirus Outbreak; and the feasibility of two countermeasures that we propose: (1) establishing a collaborative stock sharing/transshipment system; and (2) making an incentive contract with a potential second source that can produce highly customized medical/pharmaceutical items (e.g., ventilators, protective clothing for or a new drug for novel viruses).

Curating Lives: The Ethics and Politics of Feminist Critical Biography


A book manuscript in which I examine the concept of feminist critical biography as a method of reading biographical narratives, both visual and textual, at the intersections of gender, genre, ethics, and politics of personal, institutional, and cultural production. Looking at the biographer as a “curator” of a writer or artist’s life, I explore the rules of engagement with other people’s lives, and especially the differences between autobiographical and biographical strategies of writing and representation. As an intersubjective genre, biography is a cultural practice of recuperation and appropriation of the individual historical subject at the same time as it participates in the construction and preservation of collective public memory. I frame my analysis within larger questions of the aesthetic, epistemological, ethical, and ideological role of biography in contemporary culture. Working from an interdisciplinary conjunction of feminist autobiography studies, women’s history, art history, cultural studies, and popular culture, I cover different biographical genres and media, including literary biography, fictionalized biographical novel, biographical memoir, postmodern hybrid biography, biographical film documentary, and graphic biography.

Decent Work Regulation in Africa


The project on Decent Work Regulation in Africa is a collaboration between Durham University (UK), the University of Cape Town (South Africa) and York University (Canada). DWR-Africa is led by Professor Deirdre McCann of Durham Law School and funded through the UK Global Challenges Research Fund. A central aim of the Project is to establish a Regional Network of researchers and policy-makers with an interest in effective labour regulation. DWR-Africa responds to UN Sustainable Development Goal 8: to promote inclusive and sustainable economic growth, employment and decent work for all. To achieve this objective, effective labour regulation is crucial. Strong labour laws are a vital component of development policies, capable of supporting inclusive growth, sustainable prosperity, and the wellbeing of workers and their families. Yet the regulatory strategies that can effectively achieve decent work – especially in Low and Middle Income Countries (LMICs) – have yet to be designed.

A Pilot Project on Enforcing Labour Laws in Southern Africa is being led by Dr Shane Godfrey of the Institute of Development and Labour Law, University of Cape Town and Professor Kelly Pike of the School of Human Resource Management, York University, Toronto. The project aims to better understand the limitations and strengths of multi-stakeholder models in South Africa and Lesotho. The focus is on whether these models provide a better way to enforce labour rights. To investigate this question, fieldwork was carried out in the garment sectors in South Africa and Lesotho during 2018. This research involved interviews with stakeholders in both countries including government officials, employers, unions, NGOs and other local initiatives, and workers themselves.

A series of conversations on global social movements and transnational solidarity are organized to both enhance student learning about the application of critical social work tools in responding to reactionary forces, and engage student perspectives on critical decolonial solidarity.

Developing a comprehensive understanding of elder abuse prevention in immigrant communities


Older adults are the fastest-growing age group in Canada. In 2011, an estimated 5 million
Canadians were 65 or older, and by 2050, about one in four Canadians is expected to be 65 or over. Elder abuse is already a growing problem with significant societal implications and, given these demographics, is critical to address. Scholars are increasingly focusing on elder abuse, but little is known about the risk factors -- which include complex social variables -- for elder abuse within immigrant communities or what interventions might best prevent elder abuse in these communities.

Purpose: The purpose of this multidisciplinary study is: first, to develop a comprehensive classification of risk factors for elder abuse in immigrant communities: because immigrants represent an increasingly large proportion of older adults in Canada, it is critical to clarify these complex variables and how they combine to increase older immigrants' risk of elder abuse; and second, to identify the most appropriate and culturally relevant strategies to address the risk factors in immigrant communities in Canada. The study builds on the literature and our own work in this area, and addresses a knowledge, policy, and practice gap identified by various stakeholders across Canada.

Theoretical approaches: Theoretically, our study is guided by the intersectionality perspective and an ecological framework, allowing us to critically examine the complexity surrounding multiple dimensions of social identity (e.g., gender, race, class, culture, immigration status) and how these interrelate at the micro (individual and family), meso (community), and macro (societal) levels.

Consistent with this theoretical framework, we will use a collaborative, community-based,
mixed-methods approach to enable stakeholders to actively determine where research should be
conducted, which factors are relevant to abuse, and strategies consistent with cultural beliefs, values, and preferences of the immigrant communities.

Research plan: We will conduct structured group interviews with older women and men who have experienced abuse, family members, and formal and informal leaders from immigrant communities, and social and settlement service providers in the Greater Toronto Area. We will include two established and two recent communities from both the East Asian and South Asian immigrant communities: Chinese, Korean, Punjabi, and Tamil. Our team has expertise conducting research on elder abuse in immigrant communities in Canada, has well-established working relationships with these communities, and has conducted research of this scale on related topics. Quantitative and qualitative data collected via structured group interviews will be analyzed at the level of particular group interview, subgroups, and communities, and will be integrated across communities to identify common and unique risk factors and intervention strategies. We will pay particular attention to various social dimensions including gender,
age, culture, length of stay in Canada, fluency in English, employment and income, and extended familyco-residence.

Potential impact: The proposed approach is comprehensive in that it will incorporate local knowledge and expert contributions from immigrant women and men, family members, community members, and service providers and policymakers at each phase of the study. As a result, the findings will be relevant so as to contribute to the well being and social needs of older men and women in immigrant communities. The findings will contribute empirically and theoretically, as well as to policy debate and practice change, which will have local, national, and international significance.

Disaster and Emergency Management Systems in Canada: Taking Stock


To assess how disaster and emergency management institutions perceive their importance in terms of Canadian society and the emergency management community. We propose to engage emergency management institutions in a survey that will provide insight into the current state of disaster and emergency management in Canada and answer questions such as: are there issues within the system that affect disaster management? Are the majority of emergency managers satisfied with their institution’s mandate and performance? Is the level of education and training of emergency managers adequate? If not, is there a demand to acquire higher education and/or training? Is there disconnect between policy decisions, research and practice?

Eating for Trillions: The Social Lives of Direct to Consumer Microbiome Tests


This project looks at how Direct-to-Consumer (DTC) microbiome test users in an urban post-industrial context understand their bodies. Analyzing their experiences is significant as a way of understanding the accelerating biologization of human relations in the “postgenomic condition” (Reardon 2017). The microbiome is a term that scientists use to refer to the combined genetic material (the genome) of the microbes in a human body. DTC microbiome tests examine a tiny fraction of the trillions of cells in a human body that belong to microscopic microbes, like bacteria, fungi and viruses (e.g. Paxson 2008; Yong 2016). The tests can be seen as an example of precision medicine, a form of medicine that offers therapeutics optimized with genomic profiling. DTC test companies’ marketing strategies hinge on convincing consumers to purchase their analysis in order to optimize personal wellness. The project combines online ethnography with participant observation with food fermenters in Toronto, as well as interviews with naturopaths and other health professionals, DTC testing company, health food marketers.
The project will also situate DTC test users’ lived experiences of their bodies and frequent experiences of precarity and uncertainty in a wider social and political context o in political economies of North American biotechnology and biomedicine (Lorimer 2017).

Effects of Informal Online Regulatory Regimes on Privacy


The goal of this project is to examine the potential effects on Canadians’ privacy of non-legally binding or ‘informal’ regulatory regimes that are undertaken by globally operating Internet firms and online payment providers. In particular, the project explores risks to Canadian’s privacy resulting from the involvement of Internet companies in informal regulatory agreements with intellectual property rights holders. The expansion of e-commerce facilitates the ability of consumers to acquire counterfeit goods and copyright infringing content such as unauthorised downloads of music, film, and software. To address this behaviour, multinational rights holders, such as Nike, Gucci, Proctor and Gamble, and Microsoft are forming enforcement partnerships with large, mostly U.S.-based Internet firms and payment providers like Google, PayPal and Visa. Instead of using legislation or judicial remedies like litigation or court orders, however, these rights holders are increasingly using non-legally binding regulatory agreements. These agreements, which do not have the force or legitimacy of law, are composed of broadly worded minimum guidelines to direct Internet firms’ enforcement efforts. Under these agreements, Internet firms and payment providers act voluntarily to remove Internet content from websites determined to be illicitly distributing counterfeit products or copyright-infringing material.

Embodying the Tween: Living Girlhood in Global and Digital Spaces


The purpose of this project is to explore the tensions between the commercial constructions of youth cultures and the lived experiences of the embodied young person. It will address how the tween girl is framed by and how she engages with such framings. This research has two foci. The first is an exploration of how the cultural industries of girlhood, including digital media and global transmedia properties contribute to the synergistic forces of global capitalism to produce the tween as a global assemblage. The sites of this research include online advergames such as Moshi Monsters and Movie Star Planet, and the websites of media companies such as Disney and Nickelodeon, and digital market research companies such as KZero. The second foci is to explore what girls do with the tween cultures that are produced for them but rarely by them by asking how they negotiate these resources of subjectivity in their everyday lives by looking at the immaterial labour of their participation in digital media and social media networks.

Engaging global dialogue: decolonizing pedagogy and partnerships. LA&PS Grant for International Collaboration.


This collaborative research project between York University (YU) and Jamia Millia Islamia (JMI) aims to explore two critical areas of development for internationalization agreed upon at the first Global Inclusive Dialogue, South Africa, January 2014. http://www.universityworldnews.com/article.php?story=20140118132339578
1. ‘the creation of equal and ethical higher education partnerships.’ York and JMI have a signed agreement for research collaboration, student exchanges and collaborative partnerships. We will explore the partnership thus far to analyze the process, ethics and equity in the planning, and partnering for education. Research continues to reveal that imperialism often pervades Global North/South encounters and exchanges. Our goal is to identify and grapple with obstacles, which get in the way of achieving respectful and ethical North/South collaborations.
2.”… increasing focus on the internationalization of the curriculum and of related learning outcomes”. In this era of globalization and internationalizing higher education, many professionals are finding it necessary to rethink research, pedagogy and practice to be especially mindful of diversity among our student body. Many social work educators are responding to these changes by paying attention to the international in the curriculum. The aim is to review and discuss how our curricular is educating students for social work practice in a globalized and transnational age.

Examining pathways to effective depression treatment for sexual and gender minority women in Ontario.


Epidemiological studies demonstrate that sexual minority women (including lesbian and bisexual women) are at high risk for depression, lifetime suicidality, and other mental health problems. Although no population-based data are available regarding gender minority women (including transgender and transsexual women), the available research suggests that they too are at high risk for depression. Results of the few studies to examine patterns of mental health service utilization among lesbian, bisexual, and trans (LBT) women indicate that despite elevated rates of mental health service use, LBT women report very high rates of unmet need for mental health care (in a recent survey, over 50%). However, it is unknown whether this unmet need is explained by levels of need that exceed the capacity of services, or lack of effectiveness of services. Research is therefore needed to understand the barriers to effective depression treatment for sexual and gender minority women in Ontario. This project will improve understanding of the barriers to effective depression treatment for sexual and gender minority women in Ontario and ultimately facilitate the removal of barriers, improving access to prompt and effective diagnosis and treatment. A combination of qualitative, quantitative, and community-based research approaches will be used to: describe the barriers to effective depression treatment encountered by LBT women in Ontario; compare the mental health service utilization patterns of LBT and heterosexual women in Ontario; and use the knowledge gained to inform service delivery.

Exploring and enhancing access to home care services for LGBT communities in Ontario.


This research project is the second phase in a comprehensive research program that explores access and equity related to in-home care for diverse members of Ontario’s LGBT populations with a focus on Community Care Access Centres and their role in coordinating care through contracted service provider agencies. The first phase of this study explored the literature on access to home care and collected interview and documentary data from key informants on processes that foster the development of LGBT-positive health care provision with a goal of creating an organizational tool on access and equity for home care agencies. This arm of the research program will provide baseline data, an environmental scan, which offers insight into the current state of home care for LGBT people in Ontario from the perspective of service users, direct service providers and provider organizations with a focus on developing strategies for change.

Exploring meanings of caring among health care professionals providing cancer care.


This study uses guided meditation, art and small group discussion to explore meanings of caring among health care providers within a Regional Cancer Centre. The study consists of two phases. In Phase 1, profession-specific focus groups will be conducted each with nurses, radiation therapists, physicians, social workers, pharmacists and dietitians within an Oncology Program at a Regional Cancer Centre. In Phase 2, findings from Phase I will be presented to interprofessional focus groups to explore similarities and differences in meanings of caring. The purpose of the proposed study is to develop an understanding of the similarities and differences in the meaning of caring among health care providers working in an Oncology Program of a Regional Cancer Centre and to develop educational initiatives by which interprofessional groups can learn with, from, and about each others' perspectives on caring.

Extreme Love: Young People's experiences at the intersection of intimacy and violence in urban India


The project “Extreme Love: Young People’s Experiences at the Intersection of Intimacy and Violence in Urban India” explores young people’s experiences of violence in premarital dating/courtship processes in India. The context of the project is a globalizing and rapidly modernizing India where intimate culture is changing for young people. For modern youth in urban spaces, the importance of obtaining premarital relationship experience sits in contrast with continued social stigma around mixed-sex dating. As a result, young people participate in the world of youth romance in secret. Secret relationships, however, are complicated by particular types of violence endemic to the relationship process. While research on married couple’s experiences of violence in relationships is rich, little is known about young people’s experiences. Thus, the key issues to be addressed in the research are: mapping the various types of violence endemic in youth premarital relationships and documenting young people’s lived experiences of violence within the context of premarital relationships.Knowledge about how young people experience violence, how they manage violence in the context of secret relationships, and their understanding of gaps in support, create new knowledge about youth culture in India. The research, then, speaks to the recent “youth turn” within the field of Children’s Studies, and specifically addresses the call within the field for more diverse understandings of childhood and youth from the Global South.

Fashion, Photography and Female Agency in Iran


For more than a century in Iran, the female body has been the site for authorities to assert and exercise their political and ideological control over half of the population. This project explores how women in the Islamic Republic of Iran re-imagine and enforce their agency in the virtual space and redefine their identity by creating distinctively individualized styles in garments in the 21st century. While the representation of women and outfits used in photographs in the virtual space do not always take up the dress code boundaries formulated by the Islamic government, they are deliberately depicted by citizen journalists to contest the ‘image’ of the Muslim woman that was favored and propagated by theologians.

FIlipino Youth Transitions in Canada


The Filipino Youth Transitions in Canada (FYTiC) project was started in 2010. We initiated the project because research by Statistics Canada showed that Filipino-Canadian youth are not, on average, doing well in education and employment after they leave high school. Our research aims to find out why this is so, and what can be done about it. The study involves collaborative research (both quantitative and qualitative) in Toronto, Hamilton, Winnipeg and Vancouver. The project was initiated in Toronto in collaboration with the Community Alliance for Social Justice. The research will help us understand how Filipino identity is related to economic opportunities, how parental employment is reproduced in the life chances of their children, and how different immigrant settlement sites shape the next generation in important ways.

My research to date has concentrated on the evolving relationship between fruit growers and beekeepers surrounding the advent of insecticide spraying legislation in Ontario in the early 1890s; and beekeeper and state responses to the emergence of American foulbrood, a bacterial disease that decimated apiaries from the 1880s to the 1940s.

Gender Equality and Democracy in Iranian Cinema


This project examines Iranian films produced since 1990 in order to explore the way cinematic productions created a democratic and pluralistic aura in the representation of gender. It employs a comparative study of Iranian movies made in the 20th century, before and after the Islamic revolution in 1978-9, with the films produced in the past twenty years. It will shed light on the aesthetic redefinition of gender identity that has deconstructed the conventional gender roles in Iranian cinema. The history of Iranian cinema depicts that modernity, democracy and gender equality are increasingly becoming more visible and a thorough study of these concepts would be of great cultural value.

Governing Poverty in the Post-Industrial City


This study aims to document the governmental and political character and implications of shifting poverty mentalities, practices and dynamics in post-industrial inner-city locales (Boston, Dublin and Vancouver). The research documents and analyzes how certain people and places are rendered governmentally visible in relation to poverty and its various elements of disadvantage, often in ways that dovetail with gendered and racialized divisions. Methodologically, this research involves extensive archival research, field interviews, and photography. Theoretically, the objective is to understand how shifting forms of urban poverty governance relate to changing notions of democracy and citizenship, including the extent to which poverty and disadvantage become fields for authoritarian practices. Politically, this research unsettles conventional policy discourses and practices, as well as mainstream policy silos, by investigating how urban poverty governance aligns with wider political aims, such as the production of wealth, the securing of a willing and able workforce, and the promotion of order and stability. In this way, this research strives to open up space for new ways of thinking and acting upon mass inequalities that define the global present.

Herbs, Stars, and Amulets: Interconfessional Health and Healing in Ottoman Bosnia


"Herbs, Stars and Amulets: Interconfessional Health and Healing in Ottoman Bosnia" investigates the theories and practices of healing in Ottoman Bosnia as they intersect mainstream healthcare practices, religious beliefs, and folk customs. Medical pluralism that we see nowadays existed in premodern times as well, but the hierarchies of authority were allocated in different ways, allowing knowledge to slip through various forms and practices. The study gives this issue a more detailed cultural lens as it examines what kind(s) of medical knowledge circulated in Ottoman Bosnia, and how different medical practitioners benefited from and competed with each other. Deeply steeped in the region's cultural history, this study counteracts the region's current political climate that systematically endangers social intimacy among different ethnoreligious groups through the campaigns of ethnic division and exclusivist discourse.

Highlighting the role of resilience, leadership, and capacity-building among immigrant seniors in addressing elder abuse within immigrant communities


Elder abuse and neglect has been identified as a key concern that significantly affects the quality of life and the full contributions of older persons to society. While interest in addressing elder abuse has increased, considerable gaps remain in the social sciences literature. One main gap is the limited research about elder abuse and neglect within immigrant communities. A second main gap is related to the portrayal of older adults as vulnerable and lacking agency; few studies have focused on leadership, resilience, and capacity-building activities among specific organizations and among older individuals themselves. In this project, we will host a series of planned knowledge mobilization activities focusing on leadership development, capacity-building, and resilience among older immigrants in an effort to address elder abuse.

Hispano Canadian Performance and Installation Poetry: Dialogando con el Mundo


This project analyzes multiple cultures of the Americas through the 21st century art installation, electronic and video poem publications, and performance/spoken word poetry of the Hispanic diaspora in Canada. By examining these works, the project builds upon my working corpus, which I have compiled since 2014. The results of my prior analyses are available in my publications to date. Based on this groundwork on poets that I have already identified as working through poetry actions, the current list of contemporary poets includes: Sergio Faluótico, Melisa Machado, Rocío Cerón, Alberto Río, Miguel Avero, Orientación Poesía, Enrique Winter, Cecilia Vicuña, among other, from across the Americas.

The Summer 2020 portion of the project adds new voices to be studied, expanding the research to include Hispano/Latinx Canadian poets who are currently working in this field. The main questions guiding the inquiry include the following:

What have been the effects of this poetry art actions, performances and/or installations?

Why have these poets extended the reach of poetry beyond the traditional book format?

What is poetry for each author? What is its current role in society?
How do these definitions and spatial associations link with the hybrid and hyphenated concepts of identity that blur an easy connection to either place of belonging--to that of birth and/or of migration?

The data is collected in a variety of ways including observation, interviews and literature review. The project aims to understand the connections or un-relatedness between contemporary writers across the Americas creating poetry in Canada. In the 21st century this can include existing conditions about relationship, political dislocation, gender identity and agency. The project will examine the various approaches of Hispano Canadian poets that merge performance art, installation-making and digital media devices such the Internet and computer-generated hypertexts in their work, to ascertain why they chose certain sites for their works, and how they overcome challenges in the professional, personal and socio-political spheres.

My project proposes to compare and contrast the use of the arts—poetry-based, though not confined to the traditional book in print format—as vehicles for agency and reaffirming multicultural and transcultural actions in the world.

Prioritizing the focus on the effects of digital spaces of encounter in contrast with live performances bridges various aspects of the performative in relation to spoken word, visual and sound elements in relationship to subjectivity. Each work reveals the innovative and ever changing textures of these artistic creations into dialogue within larger national and global conversations.

Impact of Technology and Regulatory Changes on Earnings Persistence


This paper examines systematic differences in earnings persistence between pre-SOX and post-SOX periods in the presence of economic- and/or accounting-driven factors. Prior research (Chen et al., Accounting Horizons, 2014; Lobo and Zhou, Journal of Accounting, Auditing, and Finance 2010; Kwon et al., Review of Quantitative Finance and Accounting, 2006) finds that (1) firms with more conservative accounting generate less persistent earnings than firms with less conservative accounting; (2) firms subject to SOX are more conservative in financial reporting in the post-SOX period; and (3) there exists a higher level of accounting conservatism in HT firms vis-à-vis low-tech firms. Consistent with these results, we document in this paper that firms that are subject to SOX show a lower level of earnings persistence in the post-SOX period even after economic and/or accounting factors identified in prior research are controlled. Further evidence shows that HT firms vis-à-vis NHT firms experience a more significant reduction of earnings persistence in the post-SOX period.

Intellectual Migration: The China-Canada-US dynamics


With a case study showcasing China, Canada and the United States, this internationally-based, comparative project on intellectual migration aims to understand the dynamics underlying global knowledge and human capital flows and the significant role of Canada as a nexus in these flows. Arguing that migration is a means to upgrade and/or utilize intellectual capital for career advancement, this project studies, for the first time, a cross-section of domestic university students in China, China-born international graduate students and faculty in Canada and the United States, and overseas-trained China-born faculty and professional working in China’s knowledge and technology sectors, whose mobility can be facilitated or constrained by individual, institutional and structural factors. It explores who among the highly educated China-born population are likely to migrate, why they migrate, where they migrate to, and specifically, to what extent country-specific migrant attraction, retention, and/or recruitment policies affect their migration, and what policies Canada can pursue to enhance its competitiveness in the global race for talents.

Internet Governance, Intellectual Property and the Exercise of Power in the 21st Century


This project explores the nature, limits and possibilities of global governance of what British International Political Economist Susan Strange (1994) calls the “knowledge structure,” that part of the political economy involving control over the production, control, and legitimization of knowledge. It focuses on two key and related aspects of the knowledge structure: internet governance; and intellectual property (IP) and data governance. In other words, our research focuses on the means by which information (in the colloquial sense) is communicated, and the means by which information is turned into economically and socially valuable commodities. While these issues are usually examined in isolation, in practice they are intimately related, with IP governing the content flowing over the network and internet governance setting the terms of access and use of the network itself.

The study addresses three urgent needs: (a) to help education systems and community groups understand how to support youth refugees to catch up to their same-age peers in school as quickly as possible; (b) to support youth refugees, for whom limited prior schooling, limited first language literacy and challenges of academic language learning (compounded by socio-emotional challenges) often present a barrier to learning, social adjustment and academic success; and (c) to develop innovative policies and pedagogical practices that engage with the digital, multimodal literacy practices of today's youth. SSHRC Insight Grant. Joint project with: Maureen Kendrick, UBC (PI); Margaret Early, UBC; Shelley Taylor, Western University.

Learning and training needs of interdisciplinary home care service providers in relation to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) communities: An opportunity for interprofessional education.


This qualitative research project explores the learning and training needs of interdisciplinary home care service providers in relation to LGBTQ service recipients. Profession-specific focus groups will be conducted each with nurses, personal support workers, therapists (social workers and occupational therapists) and TC CCAC care coordinators.The objectives of the proposed study are to: 1. Develop understanding of the similarities and differences in learning and training needs among interdisciplinary providers including nurses, personal support workers, therapists (social workers, occupational therapists) and care coordinators in relation to in-home health service provision to LGBTQ people. 2. Build on existing interprofessional LGBTQ learning and teaching modules for health care providers by identifying knowledge and practice skills that are unique to the provision of in-home health services. 3. Strengthen the existing faculty partnership between the Schools of Nursing and Social Work at York University as established in Phase 1 of the research project. 4. Develop capacity-building and curriculum development opportunities in the Schools of Nursing and Social Work in the areas of undergraduate, graduate and continuing education.

LGBTIQ+ Refugee Digital Storytelling Project


Seven male refugees from West Africa participated in this project. Over two weekends, they worked with Community Story Strategies to create a 3-4 minute digital story about the experiences that led them to Canada. All men came from countries where their LGBT status put them at high risk of prison, torture and possibly death. Digital storytelling was used a research methodology that put control in the hands of the participants to tell their stories in their own way and for their own use.

Local Black Out in Effect? Media Coverage of Local Suburban Politics


There has long been concern regarding declining levels of civic literacy, which can be described as the ability to understand political processes such as elections, community consultations, and associational meetings, as well as awareness of these processes. This is said to be a key factor in explaining declining levels of civic participation, such as voting. Research has linked levels of civic literacy to media consumption. Communities with higher levels of newspaper readership tend to have higher levels of civic literacy (see for example Henry Milner, Civic Literacy: How Informed Citizens Make Democracy Work, University Press of New England, 2002). Therefore media consumption and the content of media available to citizens is a key concern for political scientists interested in understanding declining voter turnout rates and especially the consistently low turnout rates for local elections. This research project is concerned with the supply-side of the media-audience relationship. In the Greater Toronto Area and many other large urban areas more people live in suburban municipalities than the core city. Cohn in his 2013 presentation to the Canadian Political Science Association AGM (Local Black Out in Effect?) showed that Canadian newspaper coverage of local elections is weak and worse still does not reflect this population distribution, paying very little attention to local politics outside of core municipalities. This deficiency is seen as a serious challenge for the promotion of civic literacy. The present phase of the project is adding data from a second election for each of the three urban areas studied for Cohn's 2013 paper and also adding data from non-major papers (weekly community papers).

London and Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario: How the Political Economy of Neoliberal Globalism has Played Out in Two Urban Areas


London, Ontario and Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario are two mid-sized urban areas located in the Southwest of the Province. In the mid-1980, as Canada embarked on the era of neoliberal globalism the two urban areas were also very similar in terms of their demographics, structures of their local economies, and their endowments of social resources (educational and health institutions, community organizations, etc.). Yet thirtyfive years on, there is a general consensus that Kitchener-Waterloo has done better during the era of Neoliberal Globalism than has London. This project will begin by questioning what it means to say an urban area has been successful in terms of economic-development. Having established this definition, the project proceeds to empirically test whether or not the conventional wisdom regarding the differing fates of London and Kitchener-Waterloo is in fact accurate. The third stage of the project seeks to explain why this outcome occurred. This project is in a very preliminary stage. An initial funding application (for a York small research grant) will be submitted in the Spring of 2020 followed by an application for a SSHRC Insight Grant in 2020/21.

Long Run Trends in Assortative Mating and Socioeconomic Mobility in the United States and Canada


We provide new evidence about long-run trends in the transmission of economic status across generations for both men and women. Most historical studies of intergenerational mobility rely on linking individuals across multiple census records using surnames, and married women have historically changed their surnames upon marriage. As such, it is difficult for most such studies to say anything about mobility among women. In the proposed work, we circumvent this problem using a methodology that relies on the socioeconomic content of first names. We measure trends in assortative mating and in the geography of intergenerational mobility within North America. This work will focus on the role of institutions in shaping long-run mobility trends, emphasizing on the complex interrelationship between intergenerational mobility and marriage institutions. By sorting individuals into families, marriage plays a critical role in the transmission of human capital and wealth across generations.

Managing and Mining Urban Spatio-Temporal Data


The wide-spread use of smart phones, sensors and other IoT devices in cities world-wide has given rise to a huge volume of urban spatio-temporal data, which often present themselves as high-velocity continuous streams with considerable noise and uncertainties. These data record a vast amount of movement information of people, vehicles, etc., and serve as the backbone of a variety of applications, such as urban traffic management, road network planning, location-based services, and environmental monitoring. While governments, businesses and other organizations have realized the tremendous value of urban spatio-temporal data, how to effectively tap into this potential is still an elusive goal.

The unifying theme of the project is to address the challenges arising from managing and mining urban spatio-temporal data. Some of the questions we strive to answer are: How to improve the quality of such data to provide a reliable basis for data analytics? How to efficiently process continuous queries (such as k nearest-neighbor queries) and discover patterns over spatio-temporal streams? How to construct a probabilistic model to capture the underlying intention of movement? How to use this model to support advanced applications, such as traffic flow forecasting, dynamic navigation, and next location prediction?

Novel models and methods developed from this project will help lay the data management and analytics foundation for a wide spectrum of applications, and provide a better understanding of human mobility patterns.

Managing Organizations vs. Managing by Contract


Over the last twenty-five years there has been a major shift within many states towards a series of delivery models generically described as “alternative service delivery”. This includes contracting-out service delivery to private for-profit firms, as well as hybrid solutions such creating internal markets, partnerships to deliver services with community organizations and also public-private partnerships (where private for-profit firms partner with the state in a collaborative venture) to name just a few. What all of these approaches have in common is that the traditional approach to the delivery of services, the deployment of resources via an organization arranged in a bureaucratic hierarchy is suspended. Instead a contract is entered into between the state organization acting as a purchaser and another party, with the services being delivered according to the terms of this contract. Using the existing literature, as well as interviews with current public managers in local government, the Ontario public service and the public service of Canada, this research seeks to uncover the different skills, tools and preparation needed to manage by contracts as opposed to managing organizations. Ultimately, this information will be used to assess and advocate for improvements in the curriculum of public administration programs so as to better prepare graduates for management positions in a world where managing by contract will be an everyday part of their work.

Neoliberal industrialization, the rural periphery, and uneven development in India


Geographically uneven development (GUD) is an enduring problem worldwide. Its urgency is more apparent in the context of the recent phase of industrialization occurring in the South since the onset of the neoliberal form of capitalism. This industrialization, which takes different forms, including transplantation of large-scale industry into rural areas, creating newly industrialized cities, is occurring in many parts of India, in which state’s earlier role in promoting equality between areas (and groups/classes) is relatively diminished since 1991. This new context raises a specific question: how does this pattern of industrialization cause uneven development between newly created urban areas and rural areas, and within the rural periphery? This multi-year project involves much theoretical work, which will guide the empirical component of the project. It will produce a thoroughgoing, rigorous critique of some of the existing views on uneven development and will seek to produce an alternative framework to understand it. The much-neglected perspective of uneven and combined development will shape the thinking about GUD. The project will theorize uneven development in terms of a) the interplay between the ruralisation of capital and what is known as the urbanization of capital, and the attendant issue of the uneven transition to real subsumption of labour, influenced by class struggle, and b) the relation of this interplay to the political power of different social classes as well as neoliberal state policies at sub-national scales. Among other things, the project will theorize, and shed empirical light on, some of the larger issues surrounding uneven development both as an explanan and as an explanandum: the theoretical and empirical link between capitalist industrialization and the place-specific successes/failures of capital and the state to acquire land and use it; geographical character of class relations, including the dialectics of ruralization and urbanization of capital, and of various forms of subsumption of labour under capital; and long-term objective and subjective obstacles to class-politics, including the processes shaping class-based mobilization across the rural-urban divide against capitalism and its state. In short: uneven development will be deployed as a window through which to look at the dynamics of capitalist class relation, in terms of its economic and political dimension, and of anti-capitalist politics.

Oral Histories of Lei Feng


Little known in the West, kindly and thrifty soldier Lei Feng (1940-1962) was established as a Chinese national hero by Mao Tsedong in 1963. The Chinese curriculum has since exhorted even its youngest students to “Learn from Lei Feng!” This project, undertaken with Zhipeng Gao, first used oral history data to examine how Lei Feng is remembered by different cohorts in China. Subsequently, we have contrasted how scholars and ordinary Chinese speak about China's generations, asked how the "truth" or "authenticity" of the Lei Feng stories is taken up in China and North America, and discussed the varied conceptions of "thrift" throughout contemporary Chinese history.

Our Data Ourselves


The Our Data Ourselves project examined ways of understanding and reclaiming the data that young people produce on smartphone devices. More specifically, it explored the growing usage and centrality of mobiles in the lives of young people between the ages of 14 and 18 years old, questioning what data-making possibilities exist if users can either uncover and/or capture what data controllers such as Facebook monetize and share about themselves with third-parties. We therefore designed MobileMiner, an app we created to consider how gaining access to one’s own data not only augments the agency of the individual but of the collective user. Finally, we explored the data productions from everyday use of mobiles during two hackathons that we held.

Partnering to promote health care equity for ethnic minority older adults


Recent immigrant older adults and some visible minorities who have aged here experience health inequities in Canada. These are primarily related to difficulties with the complex process of accessing suitable care. However, Canadian research on the topic is extremely fragmented and hard to find and knowledge users charged with designing policy and programs do not have the evidence they need to help them to address access barriers experienced by ethnic minority older adults. Effort is needed to consolidate existing evidence and design research that fills knowledge gaps with respect to access so as to generate a decision-making tool that can guide knowledge users in their decisions across different health and social care contexts. This project intends to address this gap.

Party 'N Play - Long Play (PNPLP)


This multi-modal research study examines men who engage in sex with other men (MSM) in Toronto and the use of methamphetamines in direct relation to sexplay, a practice known in North America as “PNP” (party and play). The project title acknowledges, on the one hand, the kinds of durational sex practices which often accompany meth use and, on the other, the vinyl long play record (or “LP”) which carries importance as a tool that accompanies sexual play.

Programming, practices, production and policy: Canadian community radio


Canadian radio's potential for representative and inclusive broadcasting has yet to be realized. This research will work to expand the possibilities of radio within the context of current programming, practice, production, and policy realities. For this project community radio is defined as locally specific ` managed by and broadcasting to and for its constituent communities. Canadian community/campus radio is tasked with the representing "diverse cultural groups, including official linguistic minorities" (CRTC 2010-499). Community radio responds to the needs of community/-ies served in distinct and specific ways depending on the local and social context, meaning practices on the ground vary considerably in their negotiations of local factors. We argue that Canada's community/campus radio stations face financial, practical and other challenges to work within the limitations of their resources and policy. This research will investigate the challenges and best practices of Canadian stations through interviews in order to share their innovations and initiatives to help to sustain and advance the goals of community/campus radio stations in Canada. The parallel CRTC reassessment of radio makes it significant.

Queering Canadian suburbs: LGBTQ2S place-making outside of central cities


This research addresses key knowledge gaps regarding the lives, service needs, and place-making practices of suburban Canadian LGBTQ2S (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, Queer, and Two-Spirit) populations. The dearth of attention to sexuality among suburban scholars and the limited investigation of the suburbs by geographers of sexualities means that we know little about the LGBTQ2S populations living there, or how to situate them within changing suburban landscapes. In Canada, this inattention has significant implications: a limited understanding of the spatial, embodied and discursive dimensions of everyday queer lives in suburbia; an inadequate grasp of the support services and the socially inclusive policymaking needed at the municipal and metropolitan scales; and an inability to imagine suburbia as a queer location. This research uses queer and intersectionality theories to document the geographies of queer suburban lives as they intersect with other minority identity markers (e.g., ethnicity, racialization, class, gender, and age) in Toronto, Montreal, and Vancouver.

Racialized Reception Contexts


Racialized Reception Contexts (RRC) aims to develop a program of research orientated within the field of Critical Immigration and Refugee Studies. Initial research focuses on configurations of racialization in relation to the meaning of East/West, South/North, and the articulations of racism and nationalism in the reception of refugees in Europe, North America and the Middle East. RRC is guided by the understanding that racialization, particularly in light of the post-9/11 “war on terror,” works with the historical conditions of racism specific to a given national formation, but in a dynamic global context. A six-country analysis of Canada, the United States, Italy, Greece, Norway and Jordan, will examine the extent to which policy instruments and media discourse related to the global refugee crisis negatively impacts racialized communities in each reception context.

Re-Centering the Mediterranean: Refugee Resettlement on the Sicilian Borderland


Since 2011, ethnographic research on Sicily has examined how refugees are integrated within their host communities, as well as the roadblocks to successful recognition of the social, cultural, and economic needs of newcomers. A period of fieldwork on Lampedusa allowed me to examine the discordant dynamics of hospitality and anti-immigration sentiment at the local level, while on neighbouring Sicily I have examined the rising support for neo-nationalist right-wing movements within rural communities over the alleged demographic and cultural threat posed by refugees, as well as the rejection of this discourse by refugee rights advocates. This work also examines a broad-based movement in Italy to settle refugees in declining rural towns in order to secure the demographic viability of these sites, and includes specific attention to the reconfiguration of the island of Sicily as a place of both departures and arrivals, and indeed a transnational space defined by connections with a vibrant global Sicilian diaspora throughout Europe, the US, and Canada.

Remembering and Memorializing Violence: Transnational Feminist Dialogues


How colonial, imperial, militarized and state violence are remembered and memorialized—through, for example, memorials, museums, archives, performances, and art installations—are sites of constant contestation and anxiety. Questions of who and what gets remembered or forgotten, whose loss mourned and grieved, and how, what kinds of memorialization processes are assigned cultural value and how others are made absent, are shaped by racially gendered histories, ideologies, subjectivities and imaginaries. They also emerge within and are shaped by–sometimes in resistance to–transnational relations, discourses, ideologies, market flows, border controls, migration patterns, legal frameworks, media culture and more. Invoking a broad, critical and intersectional understanding of the transnational that attends to the particularities of place-based struggles and difference experiences as the grounds from which to explore connections, similarities and coalitional possibilities within, across and through borders and contexts, this project centrally asks what a transnational feminist lens might reveal about the space of remembrance and memorialization. Simultaneously, it seeks to explore what the lens of memory and memorialization may conversely illuminate about our transnational feminist engagements, scholarly, artistic, activist and otherwise.

Rural Reception Contexts


Rural Reception Contexts is a research collaboration between York University’s Canada Research Chair (CRC) in Citizenship, Social Justice and Ethno-Racialization, the office of Kim Rudd, Member of Parliament for Northumberland-Peterborough South, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Natural Resources and the Department of Economic Development and Tourism, Northumberland County,Ontario. Lead by the CRC, this three-way collaborative partnership seeks to develop a robust understanding of the reception of sponsored Syrian refugees in the context of Northumberland County, Ontario, so as to identify positive interventions and strategies that will enhance inclusive community development.

Northumberland County (NC) is active in welcoming Syrian refugees via sponsorship initiatives and the number of sponsored refugees is expected to significantly increase by mid- to late- 2016. NC presents us with an opportunity to examine the specific dynamics of refugee reception in a rural area with significant pockets of economic deprivation. Rural Reception Contexts will provide a detailed case study of the inclusion/exclusion of Syrian refugees in NC and will help us to gain insights into the specifics of rural refugee settlement. The findings from this socially engaged research will directly support policy-thinking at the local level in Northumberland County and will have implications for policy thinking at the national level.

The project is funded through the Social Science and Humanities Research Council in partnership with Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada, special call 'Targeted Research: Syrian Refugee Arrival, Resettlement and Integration'. The project is derived from and will extend Dr Kyriakides' Racialized Reception Contexts research program to in-Canada rural reception.

This research project traces the development of global policy since the 1980s to promote safe motherhood and reduce maternal mortality. Drawing on visual, documentary, and narrative data from key governmental, NGO and UN organizations, I am orienting this project around key debates and emerging tools in the effort to address maternal mortality in low resource settings: the controversial place of traditional birth attendants in maternal health; the production and uses of photography and film in international campaigns as affective, aesthetic information about maternal mortality; and the emergence of new biomedical-technical solutions embedded in feminist politics around reproductive health. This project intersects with my research in Senegal mentioned above.

SHADD: Testimonies of Enslaved Africans from the Era of Slavery


The SHADD Biography Project focuses on the enforced migration of “Atlantic Africans,” that is enslaved Africans in the Atlantic world during the era of the slave trade, through an examination of biographical accounts of individuals born in Africa who were enslaved in the 16-19th century. The focus is on testimony, the voices of individual Africans. The Project is named for Mary Ann Shadd, abolitionist, Canadian, first woman newspaper editor (Voice of the Fugitive) in North America, in recognition of her political and intellectual commitment to document the Underground Railroad and resistance to slavery in North America. SHADD also identifies the website Studies in the History of the African Diaspora---Documents (www.harriettubmaninstitute.ca/SHADD), which houses facsimile and transcribed versions of testimonies. The SHADD Biography Project seeks to use an online digital repository of autobiographical testimonies and biographical data of Atlantic Africans to analyze patterns in the slave trade from West Africa, specifically in terms of where individuals came from, why they were enslaved, and what happened to them. The Project focuses on people born in Africa and hence in most cases had been born free rather than on those who were born into slavery in the Americas. Our contribution will add specifically concentrate on those who experienced the “Middle Passage,” i.e., the Atlantic crossing, which is often seen as a defining moment in the slavery experience. The genre “slave narrative” is thereby expanded through a study of accounts of slaves born in Africa. The SHADD Project focuses on biographical testimony as the fundamental unit of analysis, whether text arises from first person memory or via amanuensis, and whenever possible is supplemented with biographical details culled from legal, ecclesiastical, and other types of records. The Project will integrate testimonies and other data from several projects. This includes the research of the co-applicants and collaborators, who want to integrate databases in a fashion that will be innovative and creative. Lovejoy brings a range of testimonies focusing on the Central Sudan but including Yoruba, Nupe and other West African cases; Lovejoy is currently working with co-applicant, Kolapo, and collaborators, Kelley and Akurang-Parry, in the generation of materials on West Africa, along with Schwarz. In addition, Lovejoy, Schwarz and Banting Fellow Bezerra are working on biographical information about individuals taken off slave ships by the British navy and designated "Liberated Africans," who can be followed in the documentary record. In collaboration with Co-applicant, Le Glaunec, and Collaborator, Landers, these West African and “Liberated African” data will be combined with data from the French Caribbean, including information from fugitive slave advertisements, and in the case of Spanish and Portuguese colonies, from baptismal and other documentation maintained by the Church. Our intention is to identify individuals in the several collections of documents that amount to massive amounts of material. Individual testimonies are assembled on Google Drive, from where documents are transcribed into files on individuals and then verified. Specific bodies of data will be the focus of PhD and MA research projects. The Project contributes to an understanding of the trans-Atlantic slave trade and its impact on West Africa as gleaned from biographical accounts. Scholars in several disciplines other than history, including literature studies and sociology will benefit from the project, which also will interest individuals undertaking genealogical research.The SHADD website allows students, the scholarly community, and the general access to the extensive data in an interactive form.

In collaboration with Co-applicant, Le Glaunec, and Collaborator, Landers, these West African and “Liberated African” data will be combined with data from the French Caribbean, including information from fugitive slave advertisements, and in the case of Spanish and Portuguese colonies, from baptismal and other documentation maintained by the Church. Our intention is to identify individuals in the several collections of documents that amount to massive amounts of material. Individual testimonies are assembled on Google Drive, from where documents are transcribed into files on individuals and then verified. Specific bodies of data will be the focus of PhD and MA research projects. The Project contributes to an understanding of the trans-Atlantic slave trade and its impact on West Africa as gleaned from biographical accounts. Scholars in several disciplines other than history, including literature studies and sociology will benefit from the project, which also will interest individuals undertaking genealogical research.The SHADD website allows students, the scholarly community, and the general access to the extensive data in an interactive form.

Stalled Mobility? Income Inequality and Intergenerational Relationships Among Newcomer South Asian and Chinese Households in York Region


Income equality has declined for newcomers and there is every reason to believe that intergenerational mobility may have also stalled. Evidence suggests that recent migrants are experiencing lower rates of employment and living on the margin of skilled labour for a longer period of time after their arrival than cohorts who landed between 1961 and 1991 (Ruddick, 2003; Green et al, 2016). Racialized migrants are particularly susceptible to experiencing employment precarity and low- income (Fuller, 2015; Galabuzi, 2006). Even though newcomers were doing better financially by 2010 compared to the past thirty years, still the rate of low-income for recent migrants was 2.5 times higher than the rate for the Canadian-born (Statistics Canada, 2014). Racialized newcomers contend with income instability and establishingsocial supports in finding employment and negotiating family relations. Ethno-racial, diverse, and multi-generational households are the fastest growing form in urban Canada (Statistics Canada, 2017) suggesting that income in/security may be intergeneratinally shared in households. Newcomer income insecurity strains may be exacerbated by generational differences, such as in perceptions of how children should integrate into their new country and retain cultural knowledge and tradition (Hassan et al., 2008). South Asian and Chinese women’s greater responsibility for caregiving may reflect cultural discourses of loyalty and filial piety and the lack of affordable child care (Spitzer et al., 2003). There is limited research that addresses what enhances or hinders newcomers’ economic resilience and how, these factors affect their settlement in Canadian society. Clearly there remains a complex story to be told about recent immigrants and their continuing economic vulnerability in Canada. We explore how social, economic and cultural capital and strategies employed by newcomer South Asian and Chinese households impact their survival and intergenerational family relationships. Secondary questions include: How is income inequality differently experienced in the family households of recent Chinese versus South Asian migrants? What new income strategies do newcomers adopt? How do these strategies affect opportunities for income mobility for younger generations? How might intergenerational family relationships be preserved or strained by the income strategies of newcomers?

Teaching migration and Indigenous self determination relationally


This was an upper year undergraduate course on migration and refugee protection where I challenged the very idea of immigrant settlement (a historically popular area of social work practice) as an innocent, desirable enterprise for social work. Instead, I placed Canada within a global system of nation states, and actively oriented the discussion toward the global project of imperial dispossession even if ‘the global’ seems vast and distant, and therefore, impossible to comprehend. I introduced content aimed to bridge the purported gap between the local and global modes of displacement; in the process, made both relentlessly visible. This is currently being developed as a graduate course.

The Effects of R&D levels and relative cost of Real and Accrual manipulations on Earnings Management


Firms with intensive R&D and intangible activities (high-tech) have incentives to choose real over accrual-based earnings management than those with less activity (low-tech). Real earnings management techniques have greater benefits than accrual methods because they receive less scrutiny and are less easily detected by regulators and investors. We find that high-tech firms exhibit more real and less accrual-based earnings management than do the low-tech firms. Using a 2SLS regression analysis, we find that R&D activities facilitate the choices of real over accrual methods for high-tech firms when compared to the matched low-tech firms. Our evidence is important, because it shows that the choices of real versus accrual-based earnings management depend perhaps on R&D and intangible activities. In further tests, we investigate whether the choices of earnings management techniques enhance comparability. We find that the choices appear to make accounting amounts (earnings and equity book value) comparable for high-tech and low-tech firms that report economic gains. Thus, our evidence suggests that R&D and intangible activities facilitate the choices of real versus accrual-based earnings management which in turn make accounting amounts comparable.

The Effects of the Clawback Provision on the Asymmetric Sensitivity of CEO Bonus to Earnings


Section 304 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 (SOX) sets forth a clawback provision that enables a publicly traded company to recover bonuses and other performance-based compensation from the chief executive officers (CEOs) if their company is required to restate financial statements due to material noncomplicances, as a result of misconduct, with financial reporting requirements under the security laws. In this paper we examine the effect of regulatory changes on the sensitivity of CEO bonus to earnings in the cases of good news and bad news in the periods before and after SOX. We find that asymmetric sensitivity of bonus to earnings exists before SOX but disappears in the post-SOX period. This is consistent with the reduced impact of settling up problems due to the clawback provision. This finding shows that regulatory changes affect compensation contracts and has implications for regulators, managers, politicians, investors, and academics in their assessment of the equitable relationship between executive efforts and executive bonus compensation.

The Good Capitalists: John Holt & Co. in Western Africa, 1862-1914


This project explores the business of John Holt & Co., a merchant house who had plantations, factories, shipping facilities and retail stores across a diverse range of British, German, French and Spanish colonies in west-central Africa by the early 20th century. I examine its transnational business practices, its exploitation of workers and natural resources, and how it achieved success - often by using European military and political power to gain advantages over its rivals. I also look at the experiences of Africans who worked for or partnered with the company, showing how they faced significant racial discrimination in the company's culture but showed innovation and entrepreneurship in utilizing business opportunities to forge networks and partnerships of their own. In looking at Holt I more broadly examine the development of exploitative practices by western companies in Africa in the 19th and 20th centuries.

The new creative edge: how contemporary cultural workers are transforming Canadian suburbs


This project is an empirical study of cultural production and creative practice in the ‘inner’ and ‘outer’ suburbs of Toronto (Etobicoke and Mississauga) and Vancouver (North Vancouver and Surrey) – two city-regions in Canada with the highest concentrations of people working in cultural and creative occupations. In public and private imagination, artistic creativity is often associated with the energy and intensity of ‘authentic’ places in the centres of large cities. Yet, as scholarly studies and reports commissioned by Canadian arts organizations document, the process of gentrification is steadily erasing spaces of cultural production and displacing artists from downtown artistic neighbourhoods to suburban locations. However, these same studies offer minimal discussion of how artists function as cultural workers on the suburban periphery. This project examines how suburban cultural workers relate to the suburbs as place, but also as expressions of lifestyle and values. The objectives are to investigate the functional advantages and disadvantages of suburban cultural production, the relationship of cultural workers to suburban landscapes and lifestyles, and the impact that cultural workers have on the form and character of Canadian suburbs. It extends scholarly understanding of how the creative process differently unfolds for practicing suburban cultural workers and how it is variously affected through the presence or absence of cultural infrastructure and cultural planning initiatives.

The political economy of precarious work: Stories of economic insecurity and work among sexual minority men


The goal of this project is to build knowledge and understanding regarding the labour market experiences of sexual minorities experiencing economic insecurity. We are meeting this goal by asking “What are the stories of economic insecurity and work among sexual minorities?” TNG works to support those facing economic insecurity to find employment. Sexual minorities are overrepresented among those in poverty, face income inequities, and are discriminated against in the labour market, resulting in working conditions characterized by precarity. Previous research describes the economic disparities of sexual minorities and describes their experiences of discrimination in the workplace. However, to date, no research has been done on this topic, leading to a knowledge gap and a lack of best practices to support sexual minorities navigating the labour market. This project advances previous research by characterizing the labour market experiences of those employed by precarious working conditions. This project assists TNG to better understand the needs and experiences of the sexual minority populations they work with.

The politics of greenbelt areas in Seoul Metropolitan Area, South Korea


The politics of greenbelt areas in Seoul Metropolitan Area, South Korea: I examine the conflictual processes of political calibrations between state and non-state actors over the deregulation of greenbelt areas located in suburban and peri-urban areas of Seoul. The project further seeks to probe the natures of post-developmental urbanization as registered in the moves to deregulate greenbelts. I conduct this work as a collaborator in a research initiative entitled "Global Suburbanisms: Governance, Land, and Infrastructure in the 21st Century," which was awarded a SSHRC Major Collaborative Research Initiative (MCRI) grant.

The Silent Book: Crafting Memories from A Life with Cancer.


It is a visual and textual collaborative project (with Pam Patterson) that attempts to address several complex and perplexing questions pertaining to living in the postcancer body. It approaches women’s health narratives from an interdisciplinary perspective, with the help of oral history, discourse analysis, and visual research methods. We envision the book as combining journal entries; transcripts of conversations exploring common themes and unique perceptions of cancer embodiment; quotations from famous and ordinary cancer survivors; citations from the popular scientific and medical lore on breast cancer; statistical data that patients are bombarded with; oppositional knowledge and alternative approaches; graphic memoir strips; photographs and artwork, both original and historical. This polyphonic text aims to construct an archive of personal memories that speak of women’s experiences of the body and sexuality during their cancer journeys, the body’s medicalization, pain, and empowerment, as well as of spiritual and intellectual transformations that can lead survivors toward breast cancer activism.

The Tattoo Project: Creating a Digital Archive for Commemorative Tattoos


The Tattoo Project is one of originality and social innovation. No such project or archive exists. Tattoo research offers critical insight into highly significant aspects of culture, discourses within it, and social relations. While the cultural significance of tattoos is well established. While there is a significant body of literature about tattoos as body modification, there is no significant body of literature on tattoos as commemoration. Our project is a form of public scholarship in public mediated digital space.

Translingual reading in the post-secondary context.


Working from a multilingual paradigm, wherein students’ linguistic resources are seen as part of a singular, dynamic and integrated linguistic system, this study examines the reading processes and strategy use of bi/multilingual adolescent readers (ages 17-21 years) at the post-secondary level. Knowledge in this arena is critically important both to support the disciplinary teaching and learning needs of these youth, and to generate theories and models of reading that reflect current understandings of bi/multilingualism as translanguaging/translingual practice.

Understanding women’s struggles for justice, healing and redress: A study of gender and reparation in postwar Guatemala


This eight-year feminist action research project examined a group of Mayan women’s collective struggle for justice in the aftermath of harm suffered during the height of Guatemala’s genocidal violence in the early 1980s, a harm these protagonists contend is irreparable yet must be redressed. The project was a collaboration with Professor M. Brinton Lykes (Boston College), along with research partner the National Union of Guatemalan Women (UNAMG). Crosby and Lykes co-authored the book Beyond repair? Mayan women's protagonism in the aftermath of genocidal harm (Rutgers University Press, 2019), published in Spanish as Más allá de la reparación: Protagonismo de mujeres mayas en las secuelas del daño genocida (Cholsamaj, 2019; translated by Megan Thomas).

    Vulnerabilities under the Global Protection Regime (SSHRC/H2020), 2019-2023


    This research study examines how protection seekers experience their ‘vulnerabilities’ and how these experiences are continuously shaped and produced in interaction with the legal and policy frameworks and implementation practices of the relevant decision-makers. We use the term ‘protection seekers’ to describe those migrants seeking legal protection status under national and international law.

    The select countries are in Europe (Belgium, Germany, Italy, Norway), North America (Canada), the Middle East (Lebanon) and Africa (Uganda and South Africa).

    The vulnerabilities encountered by protection seekers will be documented and analyzed with a dynamic approach, which studies the evolution of vulnerabilities over time from the introduction of an application for a ‘protection status’ to a final decision on the application.

    With Whom We Eat: Literature and Commensality


    In his essay “On Experience,” the sixteenth-century philosopher Michel de Montaigne asserts, “We should not so much consider what we eat as with whom we eat.” My next monograph, With Whom We Eat: Literature and Commensality, explores the concept of commensality—the relationships produced by acts of eating, the “with whom” of food—in imaginative literature from the ancient, early modern, and contemporary periods. The project seeks to define commensality as fundamental to a cultural understanding of food, to explore the centrality of the concept in literary texts, and to demonstrate the importance of literary criticism to the burgeoning discipline of food studies—a discipline in which the study of imaginative writing is often marginalized. The project views literary history from the perspective of food in order to divine what we can learn from them in the context of our own relationships to eating.

Contributors reflect on the experiences of women in Canada with diasporic connections to the Americas, Africa, and West, South and East Asia. Women in these communities have navigated the politics of gender, race, and identity in Canada while negotiating relationships to homelands, ethnic communities, and religious groups and institutions.

    The proposed study is a pilot project which expands on one of the applicant’s ongoing research on Eldercare Amongst Recent Chinese Immigrant Families in Toronto, supported by a SSHRC Small Grant (2016-2018) and a Minor Research Grant (2017-18). The proposed study during the applicant’s sabbatical leave aims to explore how carework is carried out by adult Chinese women in Hong Kong for their aging parents who reside either in Hong Kong or transnationally in Canada. Carework can be expressed in both tangible and intangible ways. Tangible carework includes the material forms of care such as economic support and the physical labour involved in the care of a family member; while intangible forms of carework includes emotional labour, such as expressing feelings of love and providing emotional support.
