Sociological Specialties/Areas of Interest
Dr. Cullum's focus has been on the lives and experiences of women in our culture - especially historical aspects of paid and domestic labour and unionization of working-class women and men - explored through narrative/discourse analysis. Her community service, with the Status of Women Council, and on the Board and committees of SJSWC until recently, and currently as part of the nlfeminists collective, is part of the continuum of her work at Memorial University, building on her commitment to feminism, feminist analysis and activism. She teaches at both the undergraduate and graduate levels in sociology, including introductory sociology, advanced undergraduate and graduate courses on gender and society, and graduate courses in feminist theory and analysis. Dr. Cullum is currently developing a new course addressing issues of poverty, housing and homelessness in St. John's.
