Bio/Research

I am currently working on a 3 year SSHRC funded project that looks at the experiences of women in Drug Treatment Courts across the country. This project builds on my earlier work on the rise of addiction treatment in the criminal justice system. I also have several side projects on the go including one on feminist criminology, a collaborative project with Aaron Doyle and Kevin Haggerty on the future of criminology in Canada and a piece on the shift in criminal justice language that renames offenders as 'clients'.

I am the managing editor of the Canadian Journal of Law and Society/Revue Canadienne du Droit et SociƩtiƩ.

Teaching interests

I teach law as a social phenomena, an institution that has a lot to tell us about our society. In my first year class we look at what law promises and whether or not it is able to fulfill those promises. In my graduate class we look at the criminal justice system using critical social theory. I draw on feminism, queer theory, risk, governmentality, political economy and post-colonial theory to help students better understand the justice system. I supervise graduate students in a number of different areas including prisoner rights, mental health and the law, drug regulation, rehabilitation programs and women in conflict with the law.
