Student Engagement & Activities
The Peel Social Lab integrates faculty research into teaching to provide diverse experiential learning opportunities. Students can gather and analyse data, communicate findings, pursue research projects and engage in internships.
Peel Urbanscapes began as the Urban Politics and Ethnographic Writing course blog, Diaspora Food Memories, developed with the support of the Peel Social Lab. The blog showcases wide-ranging student projects linked to social inequality and urban politics in the Peel Region and Greater Toronto Area. Featured topics include food, housing, gentrification, law and the criminal justice system.
