Who we are
SJRI is a vibrant collective of faculty brought together by a shared concern for pressing social justice issues and supported by a Projects Facilitator (Dr. Rachel Hirsch) and Administrative Coordinator (Maria Callaghan). A Faculty Steering Committee (FSC) governs SJRI representing a range of cross-disciplinary perspectives from the social sciences, humanities, and education.
The SJRI is currently comprised of 44 Brock University faculty members. SJRI faculty members work across multiple Departments and Centres including; Centre for Labour Studies, Child and Youth Studies, Community Health Sciences, Dramatic Arts, English Language and Literature, Geography, Graduate and Undergraduate Education, History, Kinesiology, Political Science, Recreation and Leisure Studies, Sociology, Teacher Education, Visual Arts, and Women and Gender Studies.
