I'm a PhD Candidate in Planning in the Department of Geography at the University of Toronto. I am currently refining my PhD proposal which hopes to look at how women of colour in Toronto are able to use Internet technologies to transmute online activities into engagement with material world planning processes and outcomes. I hope to do this through examining the racialised body and how online communities and audiences can generate social capital for racialised women in the material world.
My comprehensives focused on 1) Critical Planning: Transforming/Transformative Planning; 2) Urban Imaginaries: the Body, Nature and Technology; 3) Health, Race and the Environment.
I'm hoping to connect with other scholars and to learn more about how to engage with feminist research in an online environment, especially with regards to intersectionality. I don't have much of an academic/intellectual background in feminist scholarship and I'm hoping to improve that by my participation here. I haven't participated
