My name is Lousanne Rodé and I am a part-time PhD student. I am a South Asian woman born in Sri Lanka. I hold a Master of Social Work from McGill University.  My current research interest uses ethnographic methodologies to illuminate the experiences of those subjected to mandated institutions of social control, specifically the Child Welfare system in Ontario.  I am passionate in my exploration of issues relating to race, surveillance, representation, and the dynamics of social care.
