I’m excited to be joining CAP for Fall 2021! Most recently, I’ve been teaching across English Literature and Gender, Sexuality and Women’s Studies. I completed my PhD in Cultural Studies at the University of Minnesota in 2019. Interdisciplinarity is a fundamental part of my teaching and scholarship, as well as my creative practice. My current work investigates the role of poetry in everyday life, engaging the political economies of urbanism and the contemporary built environment and looking specifically at public installations of poems in commercial space. I come to these questions with a background in poetics, critical theory, geography, and urbanism. My research and writing has been published in A Feminist Urban Theory for our Time: Rethinking Social Reproduction and the Urban (Wiley Antipode Book Series 2021), West Coast Line, and with Vancouver’s 221A. As a poet, as well as publishing in print venues such as PELT, DANDelion and Open Text: Canadian Poetry and Poetics in the 21st Century, I have contributed to the public billboard artwork Digital Natives and the digital poems in Project Rebuild, and collaborated with artists to write poetry to accompany their exhibitions and catalogues. My poetry collection, All Still, was published in 2008 by Linebooks.
