Aniin! She:kon! Bonjour! Welcome!

I’m C Dalrymple-Fraser (they/them), a PhD Candidate and Vanier Scholar in the Department of Philosophy and the Joint Centre for Bioethics at the University of Toronto. My current research focuses on the connections between silence, resistance, and oppression in health and healthcare for trans, queer, (and) disabled communities. You can read a little more about that on my research page. For questions relating to my research, teaching, or anything else, please feel invited to contact me.

Recent News

January 2021: In this new term, I will be continuing to serve as a Lead Writing Teaching Assistant through the Writing-Integrated Teaching program, as well as a Teaching Assistant for: PHL273H1S: Environmental Ethics; PHL355H1S: Philosophy of Natural Science; and PHLC10H3S: Topics in Bioethics (Reproduction and Research).

March 2021: I am grateful to have received the Faculty of Arts and Sciences Superior Teaching Award for graduate course instructors, for my bioethics course PHL382H1S: Ethics: Death & Dying. The Department of Philosophy has posted a short interview about that course on their website.

May 26-28 2021: I will be presenting (through recorded video) two talks at the Canadian Bioethics Society annual conference. The first, titled “COVID-19 and the ‘Curbcut Effect’: Disabled design and public health” discusses how disability-centric accessibility designs could have helped reduce the transmission of COVID-19, and how it is important for public health generally. The second is titled “What’s in a word? ‘Disability’ in health research and practice” and discusses how (a) the ways we talk about disability, and (b) how we use the word ‘disability’ both cause issues for the ways we research and practice disability-inclusive healthcare. Both are short talks at 10 minutes each, and recordings will be available by email request after the conference dates.

Summer 2021: This summer I will be instructing the course “PHLC14H3Y: Topics in Non-Western Philosophy” at the University of Toronto at Scarborough. See my teaching page for more on current plans for that course. I will also be teaching “PHL382H1S: Ethics: Death & Dying” at the University of Toronto at St. George in the second summer term; info on that course will be uploaded to the teaching page shortly. Prospective students are welcome to email me with any questions or concerns in advance for either course.

With apologies, WordPress has overridden my css coding and is blocking the underlines on hyperlinks, and this is not the only accessibility barrier they’ve rolled out. I appreciate your patience as I work to address these issues or transfer hosts.
