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.
The Journal for the Humanities in Rehabilitation is a peer reviewed, multi-media journal using a collaborative model with rehabilitation professionals, patients and their families to gain a greater understanding of the human experience of disability through art, literature and narrative. The purpose of this interdisciplinary journal is to raise the consciousness and deepen the intellect of the humanistic relationship in the rehabilitation sciences.
The Journal of Humanities in Rehabilitation offers a mailing list with periodic updates about new articles.
