Ever wondered about family life in academia? In a discussion (French only) curated by Radio Canada on 18 February 2018 with six other Quebec academics, Marie-Ève Desroches examined academic careers and family life. She emphasized that her SSHRC and Trudeau Foundation scholarships gave her the means to go on parental leave. But not everyone is as lucky – many young academics can only count on their own savings, which constrain their personal choices, she added.  

Marie-Ève Desroches is a 2016 scholar and a doctoral candidate in urban studies at the Institut national de la recherche scientifique’s Centre Urbanisation Cultures Société. Listen to her interview here.
