Alan Santinele Martino

Instructor, Community Rehabilitation and Disability Studies, University of Calgary

I am an Instructor (tenure-track) in Community Rehabilitation and Disability Studies in the Community Health Sciences Department (Cumming School of Medicine) at the University of Calgary. My main research interests are in critical disability studies, gender and sexualities; feminist and critical disability studies theories; qualitative and community-based research (particularly participatory and inclusive research methodologies). My dissertation, completed in 2020, examined the romantic and sexual lives of adults with intellectual disabilities in Ontario, Canada, by putting into conversation theories from both the sociology of sexualities and the field of critical disability studies. My work has been published in journals, including the Canadian Journal of Disability Studies, Disability Studies Quarterly, Sociology Compass, and Culture, Health and Sexuality, and edited volumes focused on disability and/or sexualities studies.
