Karen Grant

Dr. Karen R. Grant is a sociologist at the University of Manitoba, and is currently Vice-Provost (Academic Affairs). Her current research concerns the impact of health care reform on women carers and the relationship between evidence and policy. Over the last several years, Dr. Grant has focussed a great deal of her attention (in teaching, research, and analysis) on the question of methodological pluralism and measurement, and interdisciplinarity in health research. In addition to several articles and book chapters, she is co-editor of Exposing Privatization: Women and Health Care Reform in Canada, and Caring For/Caring About: Women, Home Care and Unpaid Caregiving. Through her work with The National Coordinating Group on Health Care Reform and Women, she has sought to disseminate research to audiences beyond the academy. Much of this research group’s work has been widely distributed throughout the world in print and electronic format. In addition to her studies on health care, Dr. Grant has a long-standing interest in post-secondary education. She co-edited a special issue of The Canadian Review of Sociology and Anthropology in 2002 on “The University in the 21st Century.” She is currently studying how the Canada Research Chairs program is contributing to the restructuring of the academy. Since 2000, Dr. Grant has served as a member of Health Canada’s Science Advisory Board, and earlier this year, she was appointed to the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council. Dr. Grant has been invited to speak at national and international conferences, and has been recognized with both merit and outreach awards for her service.
