Assistant Professor, Critical Disability Studies, School of Health and Policy Mangement, York University, Canada

Dr. Vorstermans is an Assistant Professor in the Critical Disability Studies program in the School of Health Policy and Management, Faculty of Health at York University. Her research makes critical interventions into the field of international experiential and service learning and global citizenship, engaging plural ideas of human rights, disability and equity in our current neoliberal world. She uses critical disability theory and the lens of intersectionality to complicate north-south encounters engaging impairment and disablement. Her ongoing work engages community-based research, centers the perspectives and desires of those in the south and takes up equity, critical care in community, disability & north/south relations.
