Thomas Dunk is currently Dean of the Faculty of Social Sciences and Professor of Scoiology. In recent years, his teaching has focused on social theory (both classical and contemporary), economic sociology and anthropology, environmentalism, and masculinity. His research interests include masculinity in working-class culture and history, regional development and economic restructuring and environmental controversies. His current research is concerned with the relationships between economic restructuring and environmental conflicts in Canada and France, especially those related to hunting and carnivore protection, and the politics of gender, region and national identities. He is also working on a project with colleagues in Canada and Norway in the era of the knowledge-based, new economy.

Dr. Thomas Dunk Following an extensive search, Dr. Thomas Dunk was recently appointed Dean of the Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities, effective May 1, 2007. Dr. Dunk has been a member of the Lakehead University faculty since 1989, serving as Chair of the Department of Sociology between 1998 and 2006.
Tom Dunk is excited about the opportunity to be involved in University business at another level.
He thinks the most significant challenge facing the Faculty is to make sure the topics and issues dealt with by the disciplines and programs in the Social Sciences and Humanities are seen as being "central to the contemporary world" by the rest of the University and the broader community.
"The causes of most of the problems in the world are social, cultural, political, and economic in nature," says Dunk. "And the bulk of what concerns people in their everyday lives is also social, cultural, political, and economic. Unfortunately, there are many powerful forces in the world today that want to ignore this basic reality. So getting this message out in every way we can is our core challenge."
A dedicated teacher, Tom Dunk has taught Sociology courses cross-listed with Anthropology, Environmental Studies, and Northern Studies. An active researcher, his research has focused on the study of Northwestern Ontario's regional culture, society, and economy, and in 2006, he was recognized with a Lakehead University Distinguished Researcher Award. A busy administrator, he has served on Senate Committees, Strategic Planning task forces, and the Board of Governors.
Dunk obtained a BA (Honours) in Anthropology from the University of Alberta in 1980, an MA in Anthropology from McGill University in 1983, and was a Dean's Honour List PhD graduate in Anthropology at McGill University in 1989. Prior to coming to Lakehead, Dr. Dunk held a Post-Doctoral Fellowship with the Department of Anthropology at McMaster University. Dr. Dunk has served on the Ontario Council of Graduate Studies, Appraisal Committee Four, and was the Chair of the SSHRC National Adjudication Committee (Anthropology) for the 2000-2001 Standard Research Grants Competition. He has been a consulting editor for the Canadian Review of Sociology and Anthropology.
