Christine Kelly is an Assistant Professor in Community Health Sciences at the University of Manitoba.

Christine's research encompasses two key areas:

  1. Tensions between disability and feminist scholars around 'care' explored through qualitative studies of the Ontario Direct Funding attendant service program and Personal Support Worker education in Ontario;
  2. Canadian disability movements, including highlighting arts-based and radical mobilizing and the shifting landscape that non-profit disability organizations and individual activists must navigate.

Christine has a PhD in Canadian Studies from Carleton University and an MA in Disability Studies from the University of Manitoba. Dr. Kelly welcomes contact from students and colleagues with mutual interests, and is also accepting proposals for a new book series with UBC Press titled Disability Culture and Politics.
