About Kuir ë Garang

I am currently a researcher with Youth Research and Evaluation Exchange (YouthREX) at the School of Social Work at York University. I am also a part-time professor at Sheridan College where I teach courses in the Social Service Worker program. My current research uses phenomenology of Edmund Husserl to address how African-Canadian youth are marginalized in Canadian institutions based on bureaucratic discourses and the legacies of slavery, colonization, and the colour line regimes.

Before I started my doctoral studies at York University in 2018, I worked in Calgary for nearly a decade at the frontline and leadership positions with immigrant and refugee youths and families in Calgary. I successfully defended my doctoral dissertation at the School of Social Work at York University last year on the moral problems associated with “blackness” in its historical and contemporary dynamics.
