Concordia University

Part-time faculty

There are many part-time faculty members and all have contributed and continue to contribute to the intellectual life of the SdBI. The SdBI has a number part-time faculty members on its 10-19 list although not all of them teach in any given year (listed below are those who have taught a WSDB course in the last 3 years).

Fellows are professors from another department within Concordia University who are connected to the SdBI life. They help out on various SdBI committees, and provide support and guidance for both students and faculty committed to feminist issues at Concordia University.
