Who are we

SJRI is a vibrant collective of faculty brought together by a shared concern for pressing social justice issues and supported by a Projects Facilitator and Administrative Coordinator (Maria Callaghan). A Faculty Steering Committee (FSC) chaired by SJRI Director, Dr. June Corman, governs SJRI representing a range of cross-disciplinary perspectives from the social sciences, humanities, applied health sciences, and education.

The SJRI is currently comprised of 58 Brock University faculty members. SJRI affiliated members work across multiple units including: Brock Library; Centre for Labour Studies; Child and Youth Studies; Classics; Communication, Popular Culture and Film; Dramatic Arts; English Language and Literature; Geography; Graduate and Undergraduate Education; History; Health Sciences; Kinesiology; Political Science; Recreation and Leisure Studies; Sociology; Teacher Education; Tecumseh Centre for Aboriginal Research and Education; Visual Arts; and Women and Gender Studies.

Faculty working at Brock University who are interested in conducting transdisciplinary social justice research are welcome to apply for affiliated membership status with SJRI.
