    We are happy to announce that Dr. Astrid Ensslin has received a SSHR Insight Grant with the tittle "Writing New Bodies: Critical Co-design for 21st Century Digital-born Bibliotherapy" (2018-2020)

    Dr. Astrid Ensslin's new SSHRC IG funded research project, will use methods of cooperative inquiry and critical community co-design to develop an interactive digital story app (i.e., digital fiction) that can be evaluated as a tool for media-enhanced bibliotherapy to help young women from diverse and intersectional backgrounds address issues associated with body image concerns. The project is a collaboration with body image psychologists Drs. Carla Rice (Guelph) and Sarah Riley (Aberystwyth, UK), as well as award-winning feminist digital fiction writer, artist and game developer, Christine Wilks

    Congratulations on receiving external funding for your research!
