Dr. Erin Graham




Dr. Erin Graham graduated with a PhD in Educational Studies from UBC in 2014. Her academic work is concerned with the effect (and alternatives to) of medical, legal and social policy on front-line feminist anti-violence services and political organizing; in particular criticizing the promotion of 'harm reduction' policies. For many years prior to her graduate study, Dr. Graham worked in front-line mental health services as an advocate and support worker. She also volunteered at a feminist rape crisis centre and transition house.

She has a lot of experience of different forms of adult education, from streets and drop-in centres to university and college classrooms. She teaches in the teacher education program at UBC, facilitates Instructional Skills Workshops with UBC's Centre for Teaching, Learning and Technology (CTLT), and also teaches in the Community Mental Health and Addictions Worker program at Stenberg College in Surrey BC.

Her other interests include women's liberation, powerlifting, stand-up comedy, and learning to play various squeezeboxes.
