Donya Mosleh, PhD
Donya Mosleh is a PhD candidate at the Rehabilitation Sciences Institute at the University of Toronto, and the Critical Disability and Rehabilitation Studies Unit at the Bloorview Research Institute. Her research interests include critical perspectives on children’s rehabilitation with an emphasis on challenging assumptions regarding ab/normality, dis/ability and childhoods. Her work aims to enhance children’s rehabilitation by promoting more inclusive and non-stigmatizing practices for young disabled children. Donya’s work draws on sociology, critical disability studies, post-humanist and new materialist theories, critical qualitative methodologies and disabled children’s childhood studies. Her doctoral project employs a post-humanist perspective to explore how the child with Duchenne muscular dystrophy is enacted across multiple sites, as a means to identify alternative enactments and new meanings.
