PhD student, teaching assistant, researcher, activist and lifelong learner.

Kristen Tollan is a doctoral student in the Communication and Culture program at York University (joint with Toronto Metropolitan University). Her research focuses on the links between critical disability studies, social media studies and youth studies.

Kristen is also a teaching and research assistant and in her free time (haha) runs a literary and arts magazine for disabled women and gender-diverse creatives, called Monstering. She is fuelled by delivery Starbucks and when she’s not studying, she is adding to her list of unread books by shopping at Indigo, or drawing. She lives in the Greater Toronto Area with her study buddies, Smudge, Rory and Sailor. 🐱  🐱  🐢
