|Dr. Elizabeth Comack|
Dr. Comack is a professor of sociology whose research focuses on social justice and social equality. One theme of her work pertains to the law-society relation: the role of law in reproducing inequalities of race, class, and gender and the potential that law has to bring about substantive social change in areas of social inequality.
A second, complementary theme has been to understand the life experiences of people—Aboriginal peoples in particular—who are subject to the criminalization process.
