With a gift from the P. and L. Odette Foundation and additional support from Ryerson’s Office of Research and Innovation, the Tanis Doe Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Gender, Disability and Social Justice provides an opportunity for emerging scholarship on animating disability movements in Canada and globally. The fellowship supports the existing philosophy of the School of Disability Studies and its commitment to engaging and transforming exclusionary cultural, social and political systems. Tanis Doe, the fellowship’s namesake, was a Fulbright Scholar and a professor at universities across Canada and the United States. As a Métis deaf woman with other disabilities, Doe was a widely respected disability rights advocate and active in local and international disability, queer and feminist movements.
