Pauline Gardiner-Barber

Pauline Gardiner-Barber was born in New Zealand but now is also a citizen of Canada, Pauline Gardiner Barber received her Ph.D in Social Anthropology from the University of Toronto. She is an Associate Professor in the Department of Sociology and Social Anthropology at Dalhousie University where she is cross appointed with Women’s Studies and is the Graduate Co-ordinator of International Development Studies. The over-arching theme explored in her research concerns the gendered consequences - social, cultural, and material - of globalization. She is also interested in theory building that connects the literature on subjective experience (primarily feminist and post-structural) with the debates on capitalism and globalization. Her published work discusses livelihoods and associated culture, class, gender and racism politics in industrial Cape Breton and in the Philippines. Recently, she has also been involved in gender and development projects in relation to sustainable livelihoods, primarily in the Philippines, but also in Indonesia. Some of this work entails collaborative research; some of it involves teaching advanced seminar courses in research design and gender studies. Her collaborative work with University of the West Indies colleagues at the Centre for Gender and Development Studies occurred in the context of the Gender Group of the Island Sustainability Livelihood and Equity project (ISLE), funded by the CIDA from 1995-2000. Current research explores the significance of gendered labour migration for migrants, their communities, and for Philippine development with particular attention to the class and gender effects, and the changing citizenship and political dynamics tied to the labour diaspora. With Marianne Marchand and Jane Parpart she co-edits the Ashgate Publishing Series: Gender in a Global / Local World.
