  • Executive Co-Editor: David Pettinicchio

    I am Associate Professor of Sociology at the University of Toronto and affiliated faculty in the Munk School of Global Affairs and Public Policy. Currently, I serve as Sociology Associate Graduate Chair, and as Chair-Elect of the Disability and Society Section of the American Sociological Association. My research lies at the intersections of policy, disability, race, class, gender, health, politics, and inequality. My work has focused on employment and economic inequalities among people with disabilities, and how these intersect with race and gender. I’ve situated this work within the context of COVID-19 looking at how people with disabilities and chronic health conditions have managed during the COVID-19 pandemic using both qualitative and quantitative data. In another stream of research focused on inequality, I look at inclusion and diversity efforts within the fashion and beauty industry through the lens of production-consumption dynamics.

  • Executive Co-Editor: Michelle Maroto

    I am an Associate Professor of Sociology at the University of Alberta. My research expands understandings of social stratification and inequality by focusing on economic insecurity with a special emphasis on wealth, debt, and social class. With an intersectional approach, it incorporates dimensions of race, class, and gender, while also emphasizing disability – an often-overlooked dimension of inequality. My methodological expertise extends across qualitative and quantitative areas and includes survey development, longitudinal data analysis, and audit study methods. Most recently, I have been studying disability in the context of COVID-19 and is engaged in a multi-city resume-based audit study that examines hiring discrimination against people with disabilities. In addition to this work, I am conducting a large-scale mixed methods project, The Great Canadian Class Study, that brings together secondary data, online surveys, and in-depth interviews to provide a better understanding of the complicated dynamics behind social class in Canada.
