Christine Gervais publishes a new book - Don't miss the launch!

9781771122948_cover1_rb_fullcover.jpg

Christine Gervais (Associate Professor) recently published a new book, titled Beyond the Altar: Women Religious, Patriarchal Power, and the Church (Wilfred Laurier University Press, 2018). The book "illustrates how women religious overcome sexist subjugation by side-stepping the patriarchal power of the Roman Catholic Church." It "counters the stereotypical image of Catholic nuns as being loyally compliant with their church by showing how a number of current and former women religious in Canada challenge their institutional religion’s precepts and engage in transformative strategies to effect change both within and outside the Roman Catholic Church." (official description)

There will be a book launch with the author on Monday April 23, 3:30 to 6:30 at FSS 4004, University of Ottawa.

La revue Drogues, santé et société publie un article par Line Beauchesne

Unknown.png

Un article intitulée « Légaliser le cannabis au Canada : les défis à venir  » par Line Beauchesne (professeur titulaire) a été publié dans la revue Drogues, santé et société. L'article fait partie d'un numéro spéciale de la revue co-rédigé par Bastien Quirion (professeur agrégé) et Biessé D. Soura (Psychoéducation, Université de Montréal) portant sur le « Cannabis : santé et politiques publiques ».

Résumé:
Le gouvernement libéral du Canada élu majoritaire le 19 octobre 2015 avait dans ses promesses électorales la légalisation du cannabis. Il tiendra parole. Un document de discussion fut publié en juin 2016 donnant les assises au Groupe de travail sur la légalisation et la réglementation du cannabis qui a rendu son rapport le 30 novembre 2016. Ce rapport, a expliqué le gouvernement, sera un des outils pour élaborer son cadre législatif et servira de base aux discussions avec les provinces et territoires, de même qu’avec les experts qui auront à gérer ce cadre réglementaire. Dans cet article, nous verrons les principaux défis politiques, sociaux et économiques qui attendent le gouvernement dans ces discussions avec les provinces et territoires, de même qu’avec les experts en ce qui a trait aux recommandations du rapport. Il s’organise autour des questions posées sur les cinq aspects de la réglementation dans le document de discussion. Pour identifier ces défis, en plus des apprentissages retenus par les études sur la situation au Colorado et à Washington, se grefferont les apprentissages des études quant à la gestion actuelle des drogues légales. En premier lieu sont exposés les défis liés à l’arrivée même de cette loi, puis ceux qui touchent à l’objectif de santé publique, au système de production, de transformation et de distribution, au contrôle du cadre réglementaire, et enfin, à la question plus spécifique du cannabis à des fins thérapeutiques. Nous verrons pourquoi l’application de cette loi sera complexe, coûteuse et pourra aisément dévier des objectifs de départ. Une surveillance à court et à long terme sera nécessaire pour s’assurer que les différents niveaux de gouvernement conservent la primauté de la santé publique et considèrent l’usage du pénal en dernier recours.

Critical Criminology in India: An invitation extended to you by Abhishek Kumar Tiwari

Critical Criminology in India: An invitation extended to you by Abhishek Kumar Tiwari

At the Centre for Criminology and Justice at TISS in Mumbai, India, critical criminology is very much alive in the classrooms, in the research conducted by the graduate students and professors as well as in the community organizations that the Centre participated in creating and supervising.  Dominique Robert (Associate Professor, Criminology, University of Ottawa) has had the privilege of teaching and learning at the Centre during her last sabbatical year and wants to relay an invitation to you to participate in a truly original initiative.

The people who graduate from the Centre are invited to start their community organizations through a fellowship program. The objective is to develop services for under-served populations in India, whether by promoting women’s rights in the workplace, helping to provide access to justice for the nomadic or semi-nomadic tribes or alleviating urban and rural poverty.  One of the initiatives born out of the fellowship program is The Sabha, a print and digital newspaper for social justice.  Here is Abhishek Kumar Tiwari about his creation.

Jarrod Shook is the lead author of a new article problematizing virtual carceral tours

CIJS.jpg

Jarrod Shook (undergraduate student), along with Justin Piché (Associate Professor, Criminology, University of Ottawa) and Kevin Walby (Associate Professor, Criminal Justice, University of Winnipeg), have published an article entitled "Getting 'Beyond the Fence': Interrogating the Backstage Production, Marketing and Evaluation of CSC's Virtual Tour" in volume 7 of the Annual Review of Interdisciplinary Justice Studies. The journal is produced by the University of Winnipeg's Centre for Interdisciplinary Justice Studies and its latest edition includes papers from the Critical Criminology / Representing Justice conference held at the University of Ottawa in May 2017.

In 2015, Correctional Service Canada (CSC) launched a virtual tour promising a ‘first-hand’ and ‘realistic’ depiction of life and work inside a federal penitentiary titled Beyond the Fence. Based on an analysis of Access to Information disclosures, which are linked in the body of the paper itself, the authors examine the backstage activities that went into the production, marketing and evaluation of the tour. Drawing on Goffman’s (1959) notions of frontstage and backstage, as well as MacCannell’s (1973) idea of staged authenticity, the study reveal's how representations of incarceration and punishment were sanitized to build legitimacy and consent for imprisonment. The paper concludes by reflecting on the need to study the content and form of state depictions of penalty, and the challenges that representations pose to working toward a future without carceral institutions.

The paper is part of the Carceral Cultures Research Initiative's broader project "Problematizing Carceral Tours", which examines how tours of operational carceral sites (e.g. prisons) are one approach used by academics to get at the realities of imprisonment for pedagogical and research purposes. Through an analysis of previously unpublished regulations, protocols, scripts and other government documents obtained using access to information requests, as well as privileging the voices of prisoners, this study aims to work towards a more comprehensive understanding of the ethics, benefits and limitations of this approach to generating knowledge about prison life.

Chris Bruckert and Colette Parent author new book on management in the sex industry

getting_past_the_pimp_management_in_the_sex_industry_c.bruckert.jpg

Chris Bruckert (Full Professor) and Colette Parent (Full Professor - retired) have published the book Getting Past "the Pimp": Management in the Sex Industry. To get a copy of the book, please visit University of Toronto Press.

The issue of third parties in the sex industry – individuals who are neither the client nor the service provider – has become especially urgent in our current socio-political context. Surprisingly, in spite of an emergence of critical scholarship on the sex industry, as well as recommendations by key governmental committees, little attention has been extended to examining the role of individuals labelled pimps, procurers, and traffickers.

Addressing the function of third parties on the street and indoors, Getting Past "the Pimp" incorporates solid empirical evidence including documentary analysis, 75 interviews with third parties, and 52 interviews with sex workers to unpack the roles and relationships of third parties in three sectors of the sex industry‒ incall/outcall, stripping, and street-based prostitution. Contrary to prevailing stereotypes that portray third parties as inherently abusive and controlling, these workers fulfill important roles and provide vital services as associates, fee-for-service hires, and agency owners or managers responsible for scheduling and arranging transportation and security. The sex industry, like mainstream businesses, rarely depend exclusively on client and worker to operate efficiently, and safely.

Dominique Robert co-publishes book on qualitative research

a_journey_through_qualitative_research_stephanie_gaudet_0.jpg

Dominique Robert (Associate Professor), along with colleague Stéphanie Gaudet from the School of Sociological and Anthropological Studies, have published the book A Journey Through Qualitative Research From Design to Reporting. To get a copy of the book, please visit SAGE Publishing.

A Journey Through Qualitative Research takes students from start-to-finish through the research process while showcasing the complexities and interrelationships of different methods, schools of thought, and associated analytical strategies.

Encouraging students to think of qualitative research as a flexible, cyclical process rather than a linear one, this book offers a panoramic strategy and dynamic approach to qualitative research that accommodates the fluid nature of research and accounts for lessons learned through lived experience. With an emphasis on the analysis stage—within cases, across cases, and the dialogue between these insights and existing literature—it uses concrete applications to show how methodological decisions translate into practice.

This hands-on guide covers:

  • Forming, defending, and evaluating research questions
  • Choosing a research approach
  • Ensuring ethically sound research
  • Collecting quality data
  • Analyzing data in layers
  • Reporting research results

Through a conversational tone that unpacks key vocabulary and acts as a companion supervisor, this book equips readers to traverse every step of the qualitative research journey.
