Research Coordinator, RISE Project
Christopher Campbell received his B.A. in English and Philosophy (2010) and his M.A. in Cultural Studies (2011) from The University of Winnipeg. His research work has focused primarily on LGBTQ-inclusive education practices, though he maintains an active interest in project management, collaborative methodologies, queer cultures, creative writing, and intersections between queer, feminist and Marxist theory.
Chris works as RISE Research Program Coordinator on LGBTQ-inclusive education for Dr. Catherine Taylor, coordinating research team efforts on a number of projects (see https://www.uwinnipeg.ca/rise). Most notably, Chris worked on the Every Teacher Project, a study of Canadian teachers’ perceptions and experiences of LGBTQ-inclusive education (funded by SSHRC and conducted in partnership with Manitoba Teachers’ Society), and he co-authored the Every Teacher Project Recommendations Toolkit to help stakeholders adapt the project recommendations into practice throughout the levels of the school system. Chris also coordinated one of five research areas for the large-scale international project called “Reducing Stigma, Promoting Resilience” (led by P.I. Dr. Elizabeth Saewyc, UBC, funded by CIHR); this research area focused specifically on a national inventory of school district interventions aimed at reducing homophobic and gender and sexual minority bullying to promote well-being among LGBTQ youth. He is currently working on the RISE Project on LGBTQ-inclusive Teacher Education in Canadian Universities, which will conduct a national system scan of LGBTQ-inclusive courses in teacher education programs and a survey of the work being done in Faculties of Education with the aim of developing an evidence-based recommendations for curriculum. He has also taught academic writing in the Rhetoric, Writing, and Communication department, is active on the UW Pride Planning Committee each year, and has co-authored a number of reports and journal articles.
