Statistics Canada hate crimes report
Queen’s sociology professor Sarita Srivastava is available to discuss a report released today by Statistics Canada that reveals a major increase in police-reported hate crimes. Professor Srivastava has read the report and will be available for interviews after 1 pm ET.
Professor Srivastava’s research has focused on social movements, the sociology of gender and race, and the sociology of emotions. Her primary interest is the interdisciplinary, historical and organizational study of race and gender. It is this interest that has guided her analysis of anti-racist challenges to social movements in North America, Canadian feminist organizing, and movements for aboriginal self-determination.
