Bretton Fosbrook is a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Institute for Gender and the Economy. His research examines how diverse stakeholders—from activists to bureaucrats and business strategists—negotiate what counts as credible knowledge. His research has been supported by Vanier Graduate Scholarship, the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council, the National Science Foundation, AT Kearney, and the Canadian Business History Association. At GATE, he is investigating how social exclusions and discrimination influence the economic outcomes of trans people in Canada. This project seeks to improve the economic possibilities for trans Canadians and change the binary discussion of gender inequalities by centering the experiences of trans and gender nonconforming people. He received his PhD in science studies from York University.
