Jacqueline Kennelly

Dr. Jacqueline Kennelly is an Associate Professor in Carleton University's Department of Sociology and Anthropology. Her research examines the interactions between schools, state policies, and everyday cultural practices in reproducing or ameliorating marginalization for low-income and homeless young people. She has also focused much of her work on young people's responses to such marginalization, through social movements and citizenship engagement. She has written or edited four books exploring these issues (Lost Youth in the Global City (2010, with J. Dillabough); Citizen Youth: Culture, Activism and Agency in a Neoliberal Era (2011); Phenomenology of Youth Cultures and Globalization (2015, with S. Poyntz) and Olympic Exclusions: Youth, Poverty, and Social Legacies (2016)) and has published multiple articles in a wide range of international academic journals. She is the founding director of the Centre for Urban Youth Research (www.urbanyouthresearch.ca).
