Faculty members in the Department of Sociology at Memorial conduct research in many different areas. Here you’ll find some of Canada’s best researchers in criminology, cultural studies, sociology of the environment, population and health, international development, and more. We’re dedicated to contributing to the study of societies and our specific fields using a variety of theoretical and methodological perspectives, and communicate our research and expertise through professional publications and other academic and popular media; scholarly conferences, panels, and public events; and to students through undergraduate and graduate teaching, mentoring, and supervision. And we do it well: the quality, originality, and importance of the research conducted by Memorial sociologists are reflected in the department’s excellent record in securing national and international research funding, and the awards and honours that many faculty members hold.
