Dr. Jennifer Matsunaga on Empowering Others: Carving Spaces in the Academy (online)

Monday, March 28, 2022
12:00 PM – 1:00 PM

Lecture 6: Dr. Jennifer Matsunaga on navigating the academy and settler colonialism in the classroom.

This online Zoom lecture series centres speakers' diverse experiences navigating the challenging world of academia, finding opportunities within and beyond postsecondary institutions, and carving space for themselves and others in their fields. 

Jennifer Matsunaga graduated with a Ph.D. in Sociology from Queen’s in 2019. Currently an Assistant Professor in the School of Social Work at the University of Ottawa, unceded territory of the Algonquin Anishinaabeg, Dr. Matsunaga's interdisciplinary research examines reparations for historical injustices in the context of settler states with a particular focus on Canada. Rooted in her lived experience as a sansei or third generation Japanese Canadian, the stories of her family’s and community’s internment and redress motivate much of her work. She is an active member of numerous academic and community-based committees dealing with questions of decolonization, anti-racism and social justice.


This event is supported by Queen’s Inclusive Community Fund. The lecture series is available in an accessible format or with appropriate communication supports upon request. Please contact us by email at
