Creating Promising Futures Through Social Construction
Professor and Graduate Advisor
University of Victoria, School of Child and Youth Care
Marie Hoskins is an Associate Professor in the School of Child and Youth Care in the Faculty of Human and Social Development. Her teaching focus has been in the area of human change processes and various modes of interpretive inquiry. Building on her doctoral work which focused on how cultural discourse shapes the self identities of individuals, she continues to publish and research in this area. She has extended this topic to various contexts, including change through mediation, recovery from eating disorders, and transformative learning in educational settings. Most of her research uses qualitative methodologies, such as narrative, poststructural analyses, and hermeneutics. She is a member of the International Advisory Committee for Constructivism and the Human Sciences, and the National Training Institute for Adolescent Health.
