Dr. Jean-Philippe Warren completed a B.A. and M.A. in Sociology at Université Laval, later obtaining his Ph.D. in the same discipline from the Université de Montréal. He is a member of the Centre interuniversitaire de recherche sur la science et la technologie and the Centre interuniversitaire d'études et de recherches autochtones. Dr. Warren joined Concordia in 2002 after holding teaching positions at Université Laval and the Université de Moncton.

Dr. Warren has dedicated himself to a better under understanding of Quebec society by intertwining many fields (e.g. social, philosophical, political, etc.) that remain too often isolated. His current research, which is highly interdisciplinary in nature, is examining the histories of the Canadian social sciences, Quebec popular culture, the Canadian Native peoples, the Roman Catholic Church in Quebec, and Quebec-based social movements.

Dr. Warren's far-reaching work has appeared in history, anthropology, sociology, and religious studies peer-reviewed journals, as well as in popular magazines such as Liberté, Le Devoir, and The Globe and Mail.

Since joining Concordia, Dr. Warren has been extremely productive, having written or edited a dozen books and published more than a hundred articles or book chapters. In 2004, he won the following awards for one of those works:

  • The Prix Michel-Brunet from the Institut d'histoire de l'Amérique française for his book titled L'Éngagement sociologique. La tradition sociologique du Québec francophone (1886-1955).
  • The Prix Clio (Québec) from The Canadian Historical Association for his book titled L'Engagement sociologique. La tradition sociologique du Québec francophone (1886-1955).
