Sandra Gabriele is the Vice-Provost, Innovation in Teaching & Learning and an Associate Professor of Communication Studies at Concordia University. She was also the Chair of Communication Studies from 2014-2017.
Her research has primarily focused on the history of newspaper forms, including women’s pages in the nineteenth century, weekend editions in the twentieth century and emergent digital forms, including newsgames. She is a co-editor and co-author of Intersections of Media and Communications: Concepts and Critical Frameworks (Emond Montgomery, 2011).
In addition to researching and designing The Oldest Game, a newsgame on Canada’s sex work laws, she is currently finishing a manuscript on weekend editions in North America, tentatively titled The Sunday Paper, to be published by University of Illinois Press.
She is also a co-investigator on a SSHRC partnership development grant with other members of FemTechNet, the Atwater Library and Concordia’s Sexual Assault Resource Centre that is investigating how we can initiate a culture change around sexualized violence on our campus.
