Agnes MacDonald earned her M.A. (2004) and Ph.D. (2010) at the University of British Columbia (UBC). Since the fall of 2010, she has been teaching a variety of first to third year sociology courses, including Social inequality, Social Problems, Sociology of Knowledge, and Classical Sociological Thought at UBC, Langara, and SFU. In January 2012, she joined Columbia College and has been teaching Introduction to Sociology and the second year Comparative Race and Ethnic Relations classes. She also articulated and has taught the Sociology of Work course. Agnes offers students an exhilarating engagement with sociology.

Agnes’s research interest advances the interplay between classical and contemporary sociological theory with a special focus on early 20th century Central-European theorists’ works. She has published and presented at conferences on these topics in North American and European forums. Agnes is also a keen observer of current trends and their possible sociological extensions from surfing to social media.
