Bring your lunch and join us for an informal presentation featuring a local researcher engaged in participatory projects with children and youth!
Dr. Julia Sinclair-Palm
(she/they) is an Assistant Professor in Childhood and Youth Studies in the Institute of Interdisciplinary Studies at Carleton University. Their work examines how young people forge new identities, imagine futures and navigate structural inequalities in the midst of traditional, and often restrictive, narratives about childhood and youth. Sinclair-Palm is the co-editor (with Jen Gilbert) of a special issue of
Sex Education on “Trans Youth in Education”
and is the author of an article titled “’It’s Non-Existent’: Haunting in Trans Youth Narratives about Naming.”
Also participating in this talk will be Calla Tait. Calla Tait is a fourth year Honors student in the Childhood and Youth Studies program at Carleton University and a research assistant on the research project Drawing Queer and Trans Family.
During the lunchtime talk, Julia will be discussing two ongoing research projects: Drawing Queer and Trans Family and From Surviving to Thriving: Trans youths’ Lives Across National Borders.
