About this Event

CIAFV is excited to host a presentation from Dr. Joanne Minaker on the Conecpt of Care.

Dr. Minaker received a PhD in Socio-Legal Studies from Queen's University in 2003 and has developed an influential and interdisciplinary body of work, which merges her scholarly research and social engagement. Her main areas of expertise are: 1) youth crime, youth justice and criminalized youth; 2) sociology of care, motherhood studies and marginalized mothering; and 3) social (in)justice and community engagement. At the core of her scholarship are explorations of the tensions between individual agency and social systems and "the power of meaningful connections" in creating openings for personal transformation and social change.

Dr. Minaker shares her work in academic and community settings and has made several appearances on television, in media, including: TEDxUAlberta “The Power of Meaningful Connections” (2016) and TEDxGarneauWomen, “Just Care” (2013).

Dr. Minaker's expertise includes the sociology of care, care ethics, community engagement, youth crime and youth justice, marginalization, social justice/ injustice, criminalization of girls and women, motherhood, youth, critical criminology, social justice praxis, feminist engagements with law, criminology and social change.
