Elaine Coburn

I received my BA in 1997 (Trinity College) and then my PhD in Sociology at Stanford University in 2002. Subsequently, I was a researcher associated with the Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales (EHESS) in Paris, France and taught at the American University of Paris. I recently returned to Canada, where I am now in the departmental of International Studies, York University, at the Glendon campus. My research is in the areas of Indigenous epistemologies and resurgence; international financial institutions, especially the IMF's new focus on gender; and anti-racist feminist theories. With respect to alumni mentoring, I'm most interested in connecting with students who may be thinking of going onto graduate school and into academia.
