Faculty Associates

CFR Faculty Associates are part-time, full-time or emeritus faculty members at York University, or elsewhere. They are engaged in research in the field and are expected to participate in the intellectual life of the Centre.  For York faculty members (tenured, emeritus, tenure-track, or contractual), membership is by invitation or application for a five-year term, using criteria approved by the Executive, if any.

For faculty members at other universities, membership is either through invitation, or by application, and requires substantive and continuing participation in the intellectual life of the Centre. Appointments of faculty external to York are made for up to three years, renewable, by the Executive Committee, according to criteria approved by the Executive, if any.

Amber Gazso
Department of Sociology
agazso@yorku.ca

Amber Gazso, PhD, is an Associate Professor of Sociology at York University. Her main areas of research interest include: citizenship; family and gender relations; research methods; poverty; and the welfare state. Overall, she specializes in research that explores family members’ relationships with social policies of the neo-liberal welfare state. More recently, she has published articles on how families manage low income through networks of social support (including family, community, and the state) in the neo-liberal policy context. Assuming this same policy context, her current research explores how women and men, including those with children, experience social assistance receipt while also living with and managing addiction. A side passion of her is the study and practice of qualitative research methods; with co-author Katherine Bischoping, she authored Analyzing Talk in the Social Sciences: Narrative, Conversation and Discourse Strategies (Sage).

Marina Morrow is Professor and Chair of the School of Health Policy and Management in the Faculty of Health. Previous to coming to York she was the Director of the CHIR funded Centre for the Study of Gender, Social Inequities and Mental Health at Simon Fraser University. In her work, Marina is interested in better understanding the social, political and institutional processes through which health and mental health policies and practices are developed and how social and health inequities are sustained or attenuated for different populations. Marina strongly supports public scholarship and collaborative research partnerships with community-based organizations, health care practitioners, advocates, and policy decision makers. Marina’s research interests are in critical health policy with foci on the following themes: 1) Mental health reform, service provision and access to health services, 2) Mental health and social inequity, 3) Mental health, citizen engagement, human rights and social justice, 4) Neoliberal reforms and health and, 5) intersectional theoretical and methodological approaches in mental health. Marina is the lead editor (with Dr. Halinka Malcoe) of Critical Inquiries for Social Justice in Mental Health (U of T Press, 2017) and lead editor (with Drs. Hankivky & Varcoe) of Women’s Health in Canada: Critical Perspectives on Theory and Policy (University of Toronto Press, 2007).
