My research has centred around the themes of inequality and disadvantage, including differential access to higher education, patterns of burglary, illegalized economic crime in the outports and seniors’ drug use in Nova Scotia. More recently, I have focused on new barriers to qualitative research. My latest research compares the wartime and post-war Japanese Canadian experience with the experience of Japanese Ameicans and other Nikkei, with special emphasis on the ramifications for civil rights.
