Bio/Research

Shannon Sampert is a former journalist interested in the intersections of media, politics and gender. Dr. Sampert is excited to be a co-investigator on two SSRCH projects. One examines the gendered mediation of women leadership candidates in federal campaigns from 1975 until 2010. The second is a cross-Canada analysis of provincial elections, which involves scholars from around the country. Her reader Mediating Canadian Politics co-edited with Linda Trimble (University of Alberta) examines the symbiosis between modern politics and media and examines the effects on democracy. She is a regular pundit for both radio and television and is a frustrated and irregular columnist for the Winnipeg Free Press.

Shannon Sampert's research focuses on Canadian politics, media and gender and she is currently involved in two SSHRC-funded projects. The first is a collaboration with political scientists across Canada examining the mediation of provincial elections. The second is a longitudinal analysis of the Globe and Mail coverage of leadership contests in which women were candidates.
