Aniin! She:kon! Bonjour! Welcome!

C. Dalrymple-Fraser is a PhD Candidate and Vanier Scholar in the Department of Philosophy and the Joint Centre for Bioethics at the University of Toronto. Their current research focuses on the connections between ‘silence’, resistance, and oppression in health, ethics, and epistemology, with an emphasis on trans and disabled communities.

Summer 2020:

This summer, I will be the instructor for PHL382: Ethics: Death and Dying. The syllabus is currently being revised to better accommodate the shift to online teaching, and to better reflect the changing landscape of bioethics in response to the current pandemic. If you are interested in this course but are uncertain whether you meet the prerequisites for enrollment, or have other questions, please feel invited to email me.
