I retired as a Full Professor in the School of Criminology
in January 2016. My key interests are program reviews and external reviews
for postsecondary programs, law and society, gender, homophobic and transphobic
bullying, and critical criminology. I chaired the Ad Hoc Committee on
Lifelong Learning at SFU and served as the BC/Yukon regional representative
for the Writers’ Union of Canada
from 1999-2001. I also served as a Commissioner for the 2010 and 2013
Judicial Justices Compensation Commission of B.C. I am a board member and
President of the West Coast Book Prize Society
