Dr. Andrea Charise

Dr. Andrea Charise, Assistant Professor of Health Studies at the University of Toronto Scarborough; 2014 Polanyi Prize for LiteratureDr. Andrea Charise is Assistant Professor of Health Studies at the University of Toronto Scarborough. In addition to receiving recognition for her teaching and scholarship in literary studies (most recently, the 2014 Polanyi Prize for Literature), Dr. Charise has more than fifteen years of work experience as a medical researcher (primarily in geriatrics).

Her teaching and research focus on health humanities and artistic approaches to health studies; English literature, especially the novel and nineteenth-century British writing (the field in which she earned her PhD); older age and age studies.

Her current book-in-progress investigates of the impact of the 19th-century “invention” of population on broader cultural conceptualizations of older age—not only in the historical context of the nineteenth century, but in our own aging-averse moment as well.
