Research Clusters


Research Clusters bring together researchers and students working in the various substantive areas that make up Canadian sociology. They facilitate information-sharing, networking, academic community-building, and collaboration among faculty and students working in similar areas. Furthermore, they provide an avenue for making sociological knowledge available to media, policy-makers, communities, and non-governmental organizations.

Membership in the Canadian Sociological Association is not a requirement for cluster participation.  However, membership is required for those attending the annual Conference, or utilizing other services of the Association.
