Dr. David Long is Professor of Sociology at The King’s University College in Edmonton, Alberta. His primary teaching and research interests include men and masculinities, men’s health, mass media, gender, and Aboriginal/non-Aboriginal relations. In all of his work, David is committed to cultivating deeper understanding and appreciation for the experiences, strengths and contributions of diverse populations in Canada. His book “Visions of the Heart: Canadian Aboriginal Issues” that he co-edited with Dr. Olive Dickason has received numerous awards for the hopeful contribution it made to our understanding of relations between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal peoples in Canada. David works extensively with a wide variety of men’s groups, human service organizations and levels of government, and recently served on a national task force to establish a Canadian Men’s Health Network. He is currently part of the Canadian Father Involvement Initiative, and he readily admits that much of his professional interest in fatherhood and men’s health is the result of having been married for over 20 years and of facing the daily challenge with his partner Karen of raising four very unique and wonderfully gifted daughters.
