Dr. Kristina Llewellyn Promoted to Full Professor

Thursday, June 10, 2021

Kristina Llewellyn headshotAt the May 26 Board of Governor’s meeting, Renison’s Board unanimously passed the Motion to promote Social Development Studies (SDS) Associate Professor Kristina Llewellyn to the rank of Full Professor. Dr. Llewellyn’s cutting-edge, original scholarship has distinguished her among her peers, and she contributes significantly to the life of Renison, both as an innovative and highly regarded teacher and through service, both to the College and the Academy.

Dr. Llewellyn was promoted to Associate Professor in 2014. Her pre-tenure research and publishing sits at the important historical confluence of gender, education, pedagogy, equity and citizenship.

Since obtaining tenure in 2014, Dr. Llewellyn has taken on a clear leadership role in the area of oral history. Her highly collaborative scholarly work shows how oral history can push the boundaries of what and who is included in history, giving voice to marginalized, dispossessed and otherwise previously silenced people in various ‘pasts,’ and in ways that recognize the vital importance of this research to pressing issues of our time. This is reflected in her most recent work in oral history, particularly the DOHR project (Digital Oral Histories for Reconciliation: The Nova Scotia Home for Colored Children History Education Initiative), a project that offers both advanced Virtual Learning environments for Grade 11 curriculum, and that is deeply engaged with local community history and activism.

In addition to Dr. Llewellyn’s impressive resume of published articles and book chapters, presentations and speaking engagements, she has attained over $4 million dollars in research funding. Additionally, she continues her professional development in other fields, particularly Indigenous studies, digital and virtual learning, and also her on-going professional development with her teaching, advising, doctoral supervision, and engagement in elementary and secondary schooling teaching and learning. Her work continues to expand in complexity, depth, interdisciplinarity and impact.

Dr. Llewellyn serves as the President of the Renison Association of Academic Staff (RAAS) and was instrumental in achieving the Faculty Association’s first Collective Agreement.

Congratulations to Dr. Llewellyn!
