In Memoriam - Dr. Sharon-Dale Stone

SOCIOLOGY NEWS & EVENTS

In Memoriam - Dr. Sharon-Dale Stone

 The University community was saddened to learn that Dr. Sharon-Dale Stone, Chair of the Department of Sociology, passed away suddenly and unexpectedly from medical complications on Thursday, July 10.

Lakehead has lost a wonderful scholar, teacher, colleague, and friend who will be sorely missed. Dr. Stone made many significant contributions to the Sociology department, the university, and the community.

She joined the University in August of 1998 and made an immediate impact in the Department. Her research spanned the areas of gender and sexuality, disability studies, injured workers rights, and critical approaches to health, aging, and gerontology.

Dr. Stone is the author of A Change of Plans: Women’s Stories of Hemorrhagic Stroke(2007).

She also edited Lesbians in Canada (1990), and recently, Working Bodies: Chronic Illness in the Canadian Workplace (May, 2014), with McGill-Queen’s University Press.

She also wrote more than 50 journal articles, book chapters, reports and reviews. She was a passionate advocate for the rights of people living with disabilities and injured workers, and fought for social justice within and outside of academia.

Dr. Stone’s positive impacts on her students, colleagues, the academic community and the social movements she was a part of are very much alive. Details of the memorial service will be forthcoming.

40 Years of Publishing! Congratulation Dr. David Nock, Professor Emeritus, Department of Sociology.
