Yvonne P. Doderer is a Professor of Gender & Cultural Studies and runs the Office of Transdisciplinary Research & Cultural Production (www.transdisciplinary.net) – working at the intersections of Urban and Gender Studies, Contemporary Art and Culture as theoretician and artist.
I am an interdisciplinary scholar of literature and performance, with research and teaching experience in literary approaches to drama and the novel, in performance studies and theatre history, and in feminist and critical race theories.
I received my PhD from the Department of English at the University of Toronto where, over the course of my degree, I participated in the transdisciplinary collaborative program “Health Care, Technology, and Place.” In addition to earning recognition for my scholarship and teaching in literature, I have also had a productive career as a researcher in geriatric medicine. My research and teaching center on nineteenth-century British literature and culture, age studies, and humanistic approaches to health and the human body. As of July 2014 I’ll be joining the University of Toronto Scarborough as Assistant Professor of Health Studies, where I am the lead developer and instructor of a new undergraduate course-cluster in “health humanities.” You can contact me at my current institutional email acharise [a t] utsc.utoronto.ca
I am interested in transdisciplinary research at the intersection of the humanities and the sciences. In particular, I attempt to bring a cognitive neurological method to bear on contemporary American life narrative. In my spare time I am a photographer and an aspiring author of creative non-fiction.
