Shoshana is a Ph.D. student in the Social and Cultural Analysis program at Concordia University. Her doctoral research currently focuses on equality legislation, and how unconscious bias can affect its writing and implementation especially in cases where the rights of protected classes, such as a person’s sexuality or religion, come into conflict. She is also interested in individual and collective human rights, and the differences in how society understands and protects those rights. Shoshana has a B.A. in Sociology/Anthropology from Lewis & Clark College in Portland OR, and an M.A. in Gender, Sexuality and Culture from the University of Manchester in England where her M.A. dissertation explored the social impact of the U.K.’s same-sex marriage law.
