New piece out from us on resilience

In Uncategorized on July 12, 2019 at 10:53 pm

Mfoato M’Carthy Nicole and Wolbring Gregor  (2019)  Resilience Governance: a good place for disabled people to shape and resist problematic resilience discourses? in Canadian Journal of Disability Studies Special issue “Survivals, Ruptures, Resiliences” editors Katie Aubrecht and Nancy LaMonica p. 99-135 open access

Nicole is an undergraduate member of my research group (our wordpress page)

This is the third piece my group published on resilience.

Many very interesting  articles on resilience in this special issue

From the webpage of the special issue

“This special issue of the Canadian Journal of Disability Studies (CJDS) includes 18 original works that critically examine survival and resilience as socio-political phenomena. The volume of contributions in this issue suggest the complexities of survival and resilience are important current considerations for critical disability studies scholarship and praxis. Drawing on interdisciplinary disability and mad studies perspectives, and a wide range of methodologies, including autoethnography, poetry, photography, art, commentary, as well more traditional academic methods for sociological and social-geographical, genealogical, and geopolitical analysis, these works expose, resist and rupture unexamined relations to difference and adversity.”

received research mentor award

I received the Fall 2018 Bachelor of Health Sciences, Cumming School of Medicine Research Mentor Award. Thank you to the Wolb Pack for making it possible!I I see it to be also an award for the students because if the students would not be receptive, my efforts would not work. The WolbPack reflects as much my vision as it reflects the vision of the students that make up the WolbPack.
