Congratulations to TRU members Bretton Fosbrook and Kelly Fritsch on their amazing new positions!
Bretton Fosbrook is Post Doctoral Fellow at the Institute for Gender and the Economy of the Rotman School of Management at the University of Toronto. His post-doctoral research builds on his doctoral research that examined how corporate strategies, like scenario planning, formed in response to social and political changes and uncertainties, like the increasing awareness of systemic racial and gender discrimination and catastrophic climate change.
Kelly Fritsch is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Sociology and Anthropology at Carleton University. She earned her Ph.D. in Social and Political Thought at York University (2015) and was a Banting Postdoctoral Fellow at the Women & Gender Studies Institute and Technoscience Research Unit, University of Toronto (2015-2018). Her research broadly engages crip, queer, and feminist theory to explore the politics of disability, health, technology, risk, and accessibility. Fritsch’s current research projects include developing the emerging field of crip technoscience by taking up the politics of community accessibility and the production and circulation of enhancement and capacitation technologies such as robotic exoskeletons, prosthetics, and personal assistive and adaptive devices; a critical examination of how neoliberal economic policies and practices, as well as economies of war, imperialism, and colonialism impact disabled communities and disability politics; and collaborative projects engaging with the practices of personalized medicine and their relation to neoliberalized forms of risk and social control.
We are so proud of you!
