Transformative Research on Racial/Ethnic Inequality in Canada

The themed section provides an opportunity for researchers to showcase cutting edge empirical and theoretical work about racial/ethnic inequality in Canada. We specifically invite manuscripts on research that challenge and revise dominant cultural perspectives, approaches, and interpretations related to racial/ethnic inequalities in Canada or the study of marginalized populations in Canada.

CRS Themed Issue Special Editors Kate H. Choi and Patrick A. Denice.

The Canadian Review of Sociology seeks original research that (a) documents racial/ethnic inequality in Canada or (b) identifies the social mechanisms contributing to racial/ethnic inequality across a variety of domains.  We will prioritize manuscripts that focus on racial/ethnic inequality while also investigating the intersections with gender, social class, and migration status. We will also prioritize articles that identify race-based data gaps in Canada, and articles that use innovative methodology to fill these data gaps.

We are particularly looking for articles in the following broad areas:

  • Educational inequality
  • Work and employment
  • Health and well-being
  • Racialization throughout the life course
  • Family life: union formation, fertility, union dissolution, within couple family dynamics
  • Child well-being
  • Young adult transitions and well-being
  • Racial/ethnic identity

The deadline is September 30, 2021.
