Graduate Assistant, Center for Africana Studies



Anne-Marie Livingstone is a doctoral student in the Department of Sociology. Her research focuses on the impact of racial inequality and public policies on black Canadians. Her broad areas of specialization are racial stratification, urban poverty, urban sociology, and political sociology. Her dissertation involves a comparative study of the origins and real-life implications of urban policies developed in Ontario and Quebec to manage crises of urban unrest, and the ways by which these policies reproduce or disrupt racial constructs and racial inequality. She has also recently led a participatory action research project on racial profiling in policing and its consequences for youth of color in Montreal, Canada. She has published articles on these topics in the Canadian Journal of Education, the Canadian Review of Sociology, and Canadian Ethnic Studies.
