Biography

Professor Rodgers is a faculty member in the School of Culture, Media and Society. She completed her BA and PhD in Sociology at McGill University and her MA in Sociology at the University of Toronto. Professor Rodgers has a wide range of research interests but is interested broadly in the intersections of social movements, digital activism and social and cultural change. Professor Rodgers’ past projects include the Vietnam War-era American migration to Canada (Welcome to Resisterville: American Dissidents in British Columbia with UBC Press) and a study of the consequences of neoliberal governance on Feminist organizing in Canada. She is currently working on a project on how social media spaces are reshaping feminist discourses and another on the Indigenization of sociology in Canada.
