CASCA Executive Committee 2024-2025

Two members of the CASCA Executive Committee will finish their terms at the May AGM: Emma Varley will step down as Past-President, and Rine Vieth will finish their term as MAL Anglophone. We thank them both for their passion for CASCA, and their engagement.

Monica Heller will become Past President, and Bernie Perley will begin his term as President.

Liesl Gambold will join the team as President-Elect and Eve Haque as MAL Anglophone. We are fortunate to be able to welcome such wonderful colleagues, and look forward to working with them. Here is a brief introduction:

Liesl Gambold is an Associate Professor at Dalhousie University in the Department of Sociology and Social Anthropology, the Coordinator of the Gender & Women’s Studies Program, and an Associate at the Jean Monnet European Union Centre of excellence. Liesl’s doctoral and post-doctoral research was on a former collective farm in Russia where she examined the economic and social effects of post-Soviet agricultural privatization. While she maintains an interest in economic anthropology, she has turned her research to studies of aging, international retirement migration, and the housing decisions older adults make. With research in Mexico, France, Spain, Sweden, Germany, and Finland, she continues to explore the changing landscapes of aging and wellbeing. She has a deep interest in qualitative research methods and has contributed her expertise on several interdisciplinary projects.

Eve Haque is the York Research Chair in Linguistic Diversity and Community Vitality at York University (Canada). She is also co-editor for the TOPIA: A Canadian Journal of Cultural Studies. Her research and teaching interests include multiculturalism, white settler colonialism and language policy, with a focus on the regulation and representation of racialized im/migrants in white settler societies. She has published widely on these topics in journals such as Social Identities, Journal of Historical Sociology, Globalizations, Societies and Education, and Pedagogy, Culture and Society among others. She is also the author of Multiculturalism within a Bilingual Framework: Language, Race and Belonging in Canada published with University of Toronto Press.
