Fatima Khan

Fatima Khan is a PhD candidate in the Department of Integrated Studies in Education at McGill University. Her research explores children’s well-being in adverse contexts (i.e. conflict zones and disaster-struck areas) from historical, cultural, and psychosocial perspectives. By conceptualizing and understanding the trauma children face, she is interested in how drawings, as a participatory arts-based methodology, have been used and curated as a result of such adversity. In doing so, she aims to highlight some of the tensions and ethical issues that may arise when working with and exhibiting children’s drawings. Her work in the ATTSVE project has entailed producing a number of briefing papers on English Language Clubs, Cash Transfer Programs, and Serious Games as well as a toolkit on participatory visual methodologies for Agricultural Colleges in Ethiopia.
