Kathy Deliovsky teaches in the areas of Introductory Sociology, Qualitative Methods, Gender and Society, Race and Racialization. She publishes in the area of critical race feminism with an emphasis on whiteness studies. She has published, White Femininity: Race, Gender and Power which examines the racialized, sexualized and gendered dimensions of European Canadian women’s identities and experiences. She has published book chapters and articles on the gendered dimensions of racialization, anti-racist feminist theory and methodology and interracial coupling in Canada. She is the co-editor (with Njoki Wane and Erica Lawson) of Back to the Drawing Board: African Canadian Feminisms. Her current scholarship extends her critical race feminist focus to explore (white) women’s sex tourism and transnational relationships in, but not limited to, the Caribbean.
