Public Engagement

The Department of Sociology at Memorial is proud to be a part of our community, this province, and our broader country as well as the academic sociology network at home and around the world. Some of our ongoing public enagement projects include:


Participatory Citizen Science with Fogo Fishery: This project does science from the grassroots, where fishermen and women on Fogo Island, Newfoundland, create a research question, data protocol, gather data, and analyze data collaboratively with researchers. Lead by Dr. Max Liboiron (Sociology) with Yolanda Wiersma (Biology) and Matt McWilliams (M.Sc(Env)).
