Mary Bunch is a Faculty Lecturer at the Institute for Gender, Sexuality and Feminist Studies at McGill University. Her Ph.D. in Theory and Criticism is from the University of Western Ontario. Her research interests include disability, queer, and feminist theory, and social and political thought. Her current project, a monograph titled Ecstatic Freedom, explores a shift in contemporary queer, crip and decolonial social movements from individualized, neoliberal forms of freedom, to an emancipatory concept based on an ethics of relationality, solidarity, and nonmastery. Dr. Bunch has published articles in the Journal of Literary and Cultural Disability Studies, Culture, Theory and Critique, Feminist Theory, and the Canadian Journal of Human Rights. Her role in the BIT project includes co-facilitation of the cultivating the arts stream with Dolleen Manning, as well as developing collaborative workshops and symposiums with art components, in Montreal and Toronto.
