About me


Terry Wotherspoon is Professor of Sociology at the University of Saskatchewan. He has a Ph.D. in Sociology (Simon Fraser University), as well as an M.A. (also in Sociology) and Bachelor’s degrees in Sociology and Education. He has extensive teaching experience at elementary, secondary and post-secondary levels, and served for several years as Head of Sociology at the University of Saskatchewan. His research and publications focus on issues related to education, social policy, Indigenous peoples, and social inclusion, exclusion and inequality in Canada. This work has been supported by funding from SSHRC as well as Saskatchewan Learning, the Laidlaw Foundation, the Prairie Centre of Excellence for Research on Immigration and Integration, and other agencies and organizations. Current research includes projects related to: schooling and processes of reconciliation in Canada; issues of social inclusion, exclusion, and diversity in settler colonial nation-states; the development of Sociology in North America and the UK during the 20th century; and the impact of education and labour market policies and practices on international migration.

He has achieved recognition for his scholarly contributions to Sociology (awarded the Outstanding Contribution Award by the Canadian Sociological Association in 2021) and Education (as recipient of the Whitworth Award for Educational Research presented by the Canadian Education Association in 2002). He has also been a recipient of Canadian Sociological Association awards for Outstanding Service and, with co-author Emily Milne of MacEwan University, for the Canadian Review of Sociology Best Article Award. An early edition of one of his books, The Sociology of Education in Canada: Critical Perspectives, was recognized with a book award from the Canadian Association for Foundations of Education. He has served as President of the Canadian Sociological Association as well as Managing Editor of the Canadian Review of Sociology and is a representative on the Executive Committee and Board of Governors of Immigration Research West. He also served for several years as chair and member of the Board of Governors of the Prairie Metropolis Centre (for research on immigration and integration).
