Research and News:

  • Summer 2018: I will be the course instructor for “PHL 375: Ethics” in the first term of the summer. The general theme for the course will be ‘Bodies and Values’. More information will be posted to the Philosophy Department website in the next few weeks, which you can access if you click here, and to Blackboard or Quercus toward the start of term. Any students interested in taking the course who have questions or concerns prior to the start of term may email me at c.dalrymple.fraser @ mail.utoronto.ca — please include “PHL375” or “Ethics” somewhere in your subject line if possible.
  • Current research projects: I am currently working on two main projects around pedagogical practice.  The first concerns how we can reframe rhetoric and evaluations of “participation” in ways that are less discriminatory and unravel the ableist, classist, racist, and sexist backgrounds behind them. The second project concerns the epistemic and material harms caused by our practices around accommodation requests in the classroom. Mark Fortney (University of Nebraska at Omaha) and I are currently preparing a manuscript on this latter topic, a section of which was accepted as a poster to the American Philosophical Association Eastern Division’s Teaching Hub, 2018.
