Dr. Jerome Cranston
Professor, Dean | Faculty of Education, University of Regina
Jerome Cranston is a spouse, father, and brother to two surviving siblings and a son. He is also the grandchild of maternal grandparents one of who originated from a tribal community in what is now Nepal and the other who was Anglo-Burmese. He is the grandson of a travelling book-keeper with the East Indian Rail Company who was killed during a bombing of a railway station in what is now Bangladesh, and a grandmother who would die one year later from the effects of a British manufactured famine in West Bengal.
He has accepted his distant yet constant connection to the trauma that echoes through their and his colonized histories. He holds a PhD (University of Manitoba), Master of Education (University of Lethbridge) and Bachelor of Education and Bachelor of Science (University of Alberta). He is a critical race scholar who uses transdisciplinary, race-conscious approaches to uncover educational inequalities and systemic racism with a commitment to find solutions that lead to greater racial justice for those who are denied it.
