MA student continuing on to PHD in Social Justice Education.

Mehdia Hassan (MA '19) has accepted an offer to continue her graduate studies at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE), fall 2020.  Hassan's MA in Social Justice gave her a number of options for the fall, but she has decided to stay close to home and work with the Afghan-Canadian community.  Her Toronto-based, doctoral research will critically examine how visual methods of inquiry can allow at-risk, Afghan-Canadian youth to make meaning of their nuanced cultural identities and lived experiences.

Dr. Pauline Sameshima directed Hassan's research while she attended Lakehead.
