THOBANI, Sunera




Author Tags: Women

An assistant professor at the Centre for Research in Women's Studies and Gender Relations at the University of British Columbia and the former president of the National Action Committee on the Status of Women, Sunera Thobani is the author of Exalted Subjects: Studies in the Making of Race and Nation in Canada (University of Toronto, 2007).

She followed this work by co-editing The States of Race (Between the Lines 2010) with Sherene Razack and Malinda Smith, in which an interdisciplinary team of experts assesses how Canadian and global institutions deploy various notions of race. Using an anti-colonial feminist lens, this collection purportedly "flips the dominant understanding of multiculturalism on its head and reveals fresh insights into the racialized struggles faced by academics, activists, and ultimately, all global citizens."
