Marginalization, Privilege, and Intersectionality in Post-Secondary Students with Disabilities: AI-Based Assistive Technology

Status: Ongoing Projects
Year: 2023-2024

The main objective of this project is to scope and analyze the literature on technology use by post-secondary students with different disabilities with the intent of capturing how issues of privilege, marginalization and intersectionality are related to their use of AI-based devices and technologies that are supposed to help them navigate their education. This approach strengthens the public health view and shifts from perceiving disability as a disease to an inclusive viewpoint that is more social model based, personalized, preventative, and cost effective.

This project is funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC).
