The Department of Philosophy is proud to announce that PhD candidate Charles Dalrymple-Fraser is the recipient of a Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarship. Recipients of this prestigious scholarship receive $50,000 annually, for up to three years, to support their doctoral research; they are selected based on their leadership skills and high standards of scholarly achievement in the social sciences and humanities, natural sciences and engineering, or health-related fields.
Charles Dalrymple-Fraser’s research is in the fields of health, ethics, and epistemology, with a particular focus on the connections between “silence”, resistance, and oppression. Charles also works on “translating this research into contexts outside of medicine and health, such as exploring the ‘silences’ in our classrooms and pedagogical practices.” They are also enrolled in the Collaborative Program in Bioethics through the Joint Centre for Bioethics in the Dalla Lana School of Public Health.
