We invite emerging and established scholars who engage regularly with the sociological literature in conducting their research, teaching, and/or practice to this Zoom roundtable session, which aims to reignite critical conversations on the current state of Canadian sociology of education and encourage discussion about where the field might be headed in the future.

The session will begin with three invited scholars (TBA) reflecting on the field and how it has changed during the last half century. Then, we will invite participants to reflect on what they have heard and share their “sociologically-minded” research interests and current projects. Afterwards, we will have an open discussion on the field’s prospects and future opportunities that we might collectively pursue.  

Another key objective of this session is to build a supportive community of scholars who draw on the sociology (of education) literature in Canada; thus, at the end of the session, we will brainstorm some strategies that we might use as a scholarly community for staying connected between conferences.
