Biography

Patrizia Albanese has done extensive research on the impact of the rise of nationalist regimes on gender and family policies in 20th century Europe. Her Ph.D. dissertation on this subject is now a manuscript that was reviewed and approved for publication by University of Toronto Press. Some of her other publications focus on women in war, ethnic identity and immigration. She is currently working on projects related to family policies and gender relations. These include a chapter on ethnic families in Canada, and a research project on the impact of $7/day childcare on families living in an economically disadvantaged region in Quebec.

Harold [Innis] taught us how to use the bias of culture and communication as an instrument of research. By directing attention to the bias, or distorting power of the dominant imagery and technology of any culture, he showed us how to understand cultures.
