PhD | Assistant Professor, Pauline Jewett Institute of Women's and Gender Studies, Carleton University
I am a critical disability studies scholar who draws on feminist new materialism to examine disabled and mad students' experiences in higher education. My scholarly contributions lie at the theoretical and pedagogical intersections of disability, mad, and fat studies and include socio-historical examinations that surface the interconnections of colonialism, racism, ableism, sanism, and queer- and transphobia. I have published scholarly articles on disability-related issues in higher education, on Canadian disability history, and on community-based learning. I am an assistant professor at the Pauline Jewett Institute of Women's and Gender Studies at Carleton University. I conduct this research diversely-positioned as a disabled, fat, POC, immigrant and settler who is living, working and creating on the ancestral and traditional territories of the Algonquin nation.
