Professional Description


My primary research interests are located around the environmental humanities and radical revisionings of being in community — both pedagogically and practically — as a model of literary practice.


Some recent publications include:

  • Archival practice and public-facing pedagogy in Canadian audio archives (English Studies in Canada, forthcoming)
  • Eco-conscious memory and the power of story (Herbaria 3.0)
  • Nature as radical space in classic fairy tales (Feminist Perspective’s in Children’s Culture, forthcoming)
I am currently a researcher on the SSHRC-funded, multi-institutional SpokenWeb project. I am also the President (2019-2020) and the inaugural Director (2020-) of the English Department Graduate Association (EDGA). I welcome inquiries on graduate student experience in the Department of English.
