Fady Shanouda (he/him) holds a PhD in Public Health Sciences from the University of Toronto. His main research interests are in disability and mad studies; Deleuzian and feminist new materialism; post-qualitative and decolonizing methodologies; and the scholarship of teaching and learning.
Fady's research has always focused on education - the education we receive within formal institutions - schools, colleges, universities - as well as the education we learn from moving around the world in different bodies - mad, disabled, queer, crip, fat, etc.
He is interested in research the explores how institutions come to understand and constrain bodies of difference, and how individuals - alongside other people and things - learn about themselves and start to resist, and even create different configurations of what's possible. Currently, he is a SSHRC Postdoctoral Fellow at City, University of London researching the tech-based solutions that have emerged in response to international students’ mental health in the UK, and globally.
