Author: Cunningham, Shannon; Bergen, Anne

Description: Carla Rice is an Associate Professor in Family Relations and Applied Nutrition. She currently holds the position of Canada Research Chair (CRC) in Care, Gender and Relationships at the University of Guelph. She is interested in ways to create new meanings of differences by creating new imagery. She started Project Re•Vision, a publicly and privately funded project that uses arts-based methods to dismantle stereotypical understandings of disability and physical difference that can create barriers to healthcare, education, and inclusion in the broader community. Project Re•Vision is unique in that it puts new media technologies into the hands of marginalized communities as a way of shifting stereotypes and advancing inclusion. To that end, it seeks to engage diverse audiences in re-considering commonly held, harmful assumptions in an effort to improve health care and education systems across Canada and globally.

Among her research interests are: investigating peer play in inclusive childcare settings; experiences of non-traditional students in formal post-secondary education, in particular mature students and student parents; and influences between intimate partner relationships and school success.
