Tara La Rose
Associate Professor, Social Work

My research interests focus on professional identity and work-life, and social work’s use of digital medial as a space for critical reflexivity. My recent work includes projects considering the effects of neo-liberalism and austerity on social workers’ capacity to actualize social justice and social change goals; considerations of the intersection of professionalization, globalization, neoliberalism and social work professional identity and the power of multi-modality and digital-media-storytelling as resources for critical reflexivity and professional education. My work engages multi-modal analysis, narrative analysis and discourse analysis in the context of critical perspectives such as post-structuralism, post-colonialism, feminist and queer theories.
