Meet some of the students and recent graduates from the Sociology and Anthropology Honours program
We interviewed some of the students and recent graduates from the Department of Sociology and Anthropology Honours program to ask them about their research and their experiences in the program. Visit the links below to hear what they had to say:
Essay: Front of House Experiences within COVID-19
Alyha Bardi is a fourth year sociology student completing her honours thesis under the supervision of Dr. Kendra Strauss.
Drawing inspiration from her Minor in Labour Studies, and Certificate in Social Justice, Alyha is researching the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on front of house workers, specifically those working in coffee shops. We spoke to Alyha about her experience in the program, some of the main takeaways from her research, and how she plans to put her experience in the honours program to use in the future.
Sarah Law graduated from Simon Fraser University in June of 2022 with a BA in sociology and a Certificate in Social Justice.
Under the supervision of Dr. Amanda Watson, Sarah’s honours research looks at the feelings of ecological grief faced by climate justice activists. We spoke to Sarah about how she became interested in the topic and how her experience in the honours program led her to apply to SFU’s sociology MA program, which she will be starting in the fall of 2022.
Eleanor White graduated from Simon Fraser University in December of 2021 with a major in sociology and a Certificate in Social Justice, and completed her honours project under the supervision of Dr. Amanda Watson.
Her research explores the experiences of women with chronic pain navigating the health care system, and the prevalence of “medical gaslighting.” We interviewed Eleanor to learn more about her project and to ask about her experience in the honours program.
