The purpose of this thesis was to explore if the continuation of the work of the legendary Jane Addams and Dorothy Livesay could be witnessed in the theoretical pedagogy of cultural studies and structural social work. My journey, which incorporated over 100 years of text, allowed me to look for indicators of possible patterns in authorship exploring the his/story and her/story of cultural studies and social work. This research further explored the identifiable indications of explicit overlap between cultural studies and social work in the course descriptions and outlines of 17 accredited Master of Social Work programs in Canadian universities. --P. ii.
