Josée Boulanger is a PhD candidate in Rehabilitation Sciences at the University of Ottawa whose interests lie in using participatory visual methods to work with people who have cognitive and communication disabilities. She is currently researching the history of intellectual disability advocacy in Ontario as well as exploring a good life from the perspectives of people labelled with an intellectual disability. For Josée, the humanities offer creative pathways to gaining new insights into understanding the human experience and for promoting social justice and equality.
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.
