Sociology of Education

Sociology of education covers a wide methodological, theoretical and conceptual terrain. While research in this area is most associated with examinations of schools, inequality, policy and economic development, this scholarship intersects with a variety of research including studies of early child development, parenting, childhood and adolescence, and health. This research cluster will serve to enhance dialogue and networking among sociologists of education in Canada.

This year we are excited to once again be co-organizing a webinar series on Canadian education with the Canadian Association of Sociology of Education (CASE). Be sure to follow us on Twitter, or check back here for webinar announcements and registration information.

To join this cluster, please email Cathlene Hillier
