Champion - Social Justice, Equity, Social Groups, and Inclusion
"Equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI) issues are of great importance. Marginalized groups are mobilizing for broader social justice, both outside and within our academic institutions, including through interdisciplinary and critical fields of study. My intersectional research projects, at the crossroads of gender, queer, trans, disability/crip/mad studies, critical gerontology and critical suicidology, is part of this social, political and epistemic struggle for greater social justice. My work and that of colleagues interested in EDI issues thus aims to denounce ageism, cisgenderism, ableism, classism, colonialism, sizeism, heterosexism, racism, sanism, sexism, etc., in order to rebuild our institutions, our policies and our social interactions."
