Projects at the Care Work, Aging and Health Lab


Prince Owusu is a doctoral student at Carleton University’s School of Social Work. He has Master of Philosophy and Bachelor of Arts degrees in Social Work from the University of Ghana.

Since 2014, Prince has worked closely with his supervisor, Dr. Susan Braedley, utilizing the feminist political economy lens in understanding different facets of the care economy.

Participating in research projects at the Care Work, Aging and Health Lab has animated his sensibilities and enriched his Canadian experience in multiple ways as an international student.

Prince believes that research is an experiential and transformative process; a process from which the researcher cannot be precluded. He hopes to bring his feminist political economy understanding in dialogue with elder care, particularly to find out how racialization, culture and immigration status show up in elder care relationships.

His research interest lies in care work, social determinants of health, gender equity and equality, intersectionality, racialization, social justice and maternal health.
