Keynote Speaker: Mary Bryson

Title: Awkward Choreographies from Cancer's Margins

Dr. Bryson will share findings from the Cancer’s Margins project (lgbtcancer.ca) — the first nationally-funded, nation-wide Canadian research study designed to advance our understanding of how minority sexuality and/or gender shape cancer health experiences and knowledge access, and the mobilization of both biographical and biomedical knowledge in health and in treatment decision-making that is medically and culturally competent.

Dr. Mary K. Bryson is Senior Associate Dean, Administration, Faculty Affairs & Innovation and Professor, Department of Language and Literacy Education, Faculty of Education, University of British Columbia. Dr. Bryson chairs the UBC Vice-Presidential Trans, Two-Spirit and Gender Diversity Task Force and is a member of the World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH) Global Education Initiative. They are the recipient of multiple awards for their interdisciplinary scholarship, including most recently, the American Educational Research Association Significant Body of Research award and a Senior Fellowship at Stanford University’s Clayman Institute for Gender Research.
