My urban futures
As part of my thesis, I will study the role and educational value of street newspapers as a tool for reframing discourses and representations of homeless individuals. My research interests thus revolve around deep-seated issues in urban communities and how we can develop educational programs and tools that can prevent them and foster social justice.
I am very interested in the social and political processes that are responsible for shaping societies and how to direct these processes to address ongoing social issues and challenges. Education being a major player in fashioning these processes, I have decided to pursue a Master's degree in Educational Studies in addition to my background in Anthropology, Political Science and Social Entrepreneurship. Besides my academic background, I am currently working in the Knowledge Mobilization team of the Canadian Practitioners Network for the Prevention of Radicalization and Extremist Violence (CPN-PREV).
