I received my PhD in history from the York University in 2003. Prior to joining Laurier in 2006, I was a contract faculty member in the labour studies program in the Division of Social Science and Coordinator of Business History at the Schulich School of Business, both at York University.
Canadian history, labour and working class history, business history, class formation, social movements, labour studies, globalization.
My teaching has focused largely around the historical and contemporary development of capitalism and labour. In Society, Culture and Environment, I deliver undergraduate courses in Work (CT 470), Themes in Global Capitalism (CT 253) and a special topics course on Wal-Mart. In History, I have delivered undergraduate courses in Canadian Labour History (HI 338), Canadian Business History (HI 337), Social History of Pre-Confederation Canada (HI 321) and the survey of Post-Confederation Canadian History (HI 293).
At the graduate level, I am a member of the graduate program in Social Justice and Community Engagement and the Tri-University Graduate Program in History (see my webpage: http://www.triuhistory.ca/rob-kristofferson/). I am willing to supervise students on a variety of historical and/or social justice topics.
