Jillian Sunderland -Ph.D. Student


I am a Sociology Ph.D. student at the University of Toronto and a Joseph-Armand Bombardier Doctoral scholar. My academic focus is on masculinities, power, and violence, but I frame these issues in relation to anti-black racism and settler colonialism in Canada. Throughout my work, I typically employ document and narrative analysis to archival, media, web forums, governmental documents, and policy reports. I recently published an academic article in the journal of Men and Masculinities; I provide a summary and a brief commentary on this project in an interview for U of T News, available here. I also recently published a first-person article for CBC National News. I am committed to engaging in public sociology, and my sociological insights can be found in The Medium, The Varsity, CBC Radio, and CBC Kids News.
