Established in 1999, Toronto Metropolitan University’s School of Disability Studies offers an undergraduate curriculum that brings disability and mad studies to the wider university and through undergraduate and postdoctoral training. The School’s award-winning curriculum and scholarship are infused with social justice, critical analysis, and links to local and international initiatives, activism, and arts.
The fellow will join a core team of faculty, postdoctoral fellows, and research staff, contributing to the School’s strong tradition of high-quality academic and public pedagogy. Opportunities for teaching and some consultation work alongside the fellowship may also be possible.
