Reimagining Care/Work Policies

Patty Douglas is an Associate Professor of Disability Studies in the Faculty of Education at Brandon University. Her work concentrates on critical and creative approaches to education, care and disability as supported by feminist, queer, decolonial, critical post-humanist and other approaches that dislodge the (humanist) human. Douglas is Co-investigator on the SSHRC Partnership Grant Reimagining Care/Work Policies where she will be exploring disability, family, work and care. Douglas also leads Re•Storying Autism, a multimedia storytelling project challenging deficit-based stereotypes of autism. She is a former special education teacher and mother to two sons, one of whom attracted the label of autism. See @ReStorying
