Dr. Daniel Coleman is holder of the Canada Research Chair in Critical Ethnicity and Race Studies at McMaster University. Winner of the 1998 John Charles Polanyi Prize, he studies how Canadian literature constructs assumed categories of privilege -- an important concept for understanding how norms such as masculinity, whiteness and Englishness came to be assumed in anglophone Canada.
