Dr. Pallavi Banerjee



I am a sociologist of families, migration, labour, gender, and intersectionality.  I am currently an Associate Professor of Sociology and a Research Excellence Chair in the Sociology Department at the University of Calgary. My pronouns are she/her in support of all gender-inclusive pronouns. 

I received my Ph.D. in Sociology at the University of Illinois at Chicago in December of 2012. Previously, I was a postdoctoral fellow at the Sociology Department at Vanderbilt University from 2013 until  2015.

My research interests lie at the intersections of the sociology of families, migration, labor, gender, transnationalism, the Global South, and critical feminist theories. I am a committed Public Sociologist.
