Biographical details

Donna Baines comes to Social Work and Social Policy having taught labour studies and social work at McMaster University in Canada for the past 15 years. Her research focuses on paid and unpaid care work, restructuring in the social services sector, and anti-oppressive social work practice. Prof. Baines' favorite method at the moment is rapid ethnography in care workplaces, and she is currently involved in three international, funded research projects using this method (C.I on a five year SSHRC Insight). Baines recently published on care work in the Journal of Social Work, Critical Social Policy and Journal of Industrial Relations. She is working on the third edition of her best-selling (in Canada) edited collection, Doing Anti-Oppressive Practice, Social Justice Social Work (Fernwood, 2016), and the 7th edition of the now co-authored Canadian social work classic text, Case Critical. Social Services and Social Justice (with Ben Carniol, Raven Sinclair and Banakonda Kennedy-Kish Bell, Between the Lines, 2016). She teaches in social justice, social policy, labour markets and critical practice.

Professor Baines welcomes expressions of interest from PhD students interested in the welfare state, neoliberalism and restructuring, paid and unpaid work, and critical and anti-oppressive approaches to social service work and theory.
