Hello! My name is Jamilah Dei-Sharpe. I am a Ph.D. candidate in Sociology completing my doctoral studies at Concordia University supported by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) Joseph-Armand Bombardier Doctoral Scholarship. I provide consultancy to academic institutions and community organizations in my specialties of Critical Race Studies, Critical Gender Studies, Decolonial Pedagogy, Black Masculinities Studies and Anti-Racism Frameworks. 

Current Projects


I work with teams, organizations and community members that are invested in transformative and anti-oppressive teaching strategies, student development, sociological research or coalition building. 


My projects are made possible through support, collaborations, and funding from generous sponsors, invigorating teams, and dedicated mentors.
