Associate Dean, Undergraduate Programming, Learning and Teaching, Student Experience

As Associate Dean, Undergraduate Programming, Learning and Teaching, Student Experience, I am responsible for all domestic and international undergraduate student and curriculum matters, Field Schools, Exchanges, and Semester Abroad as well as faculty and unit-level undergraduate curricular programming development and program consultation. I also advise FASS units on course scheduling and liaise with various University entities on behalf of FASS, including Fraser International College and the French Cohort Program (Office of Francophone and Francophile Affairs). I provide leadership for FASS regarding matters of student recruitment and retention, new programs and interdisciplinary curriculum development, working closely with staff in FASS Arts Central and SFU Student Services. I am privileged to coordinate the efforts of FASS Teaching Fellows to enhance research into, design and evaluation of different instructional pedagogies, modes of student learning and opportunities for experiential learning in the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences SFU. I chair the FASS Undergraduate Curriculum Committee (UCC) and FASS Undergraduate Major Entrance Scholarship Committee, and serve on the SFU Senate Committee for Undergraduate Studies (SCUS), Strategic Enrolment Management Committee (SEMC) as well as serve as FASS’s Student Safety Liaison.

I am a Professor in the Department of Gender, Sexuality, and Women's Studies and an Associate Member of the Department of History. I teach undergraduate and graduate courses in Canadian women’s history, the history of social protest, the history of the 1960s, feminist theory, and gender studies. I am a co-organizer with Willeen Keough of Vancouver’s Café Minerva. My research on gender and women's history in North America is focused on the gendered history of the Canadian welfare state, the politics of social movements, and the history of women's political activism. I have recently published a book on the history of the suffrage movement in British Columbia, am completing a project on the emotional history of second-wave feminist activism, and am co-writing a history of the social welfare state.
