My primary teaching areas include global modernisms, American literature, and cultural studies. I have taught ASTU 100A in CAP since 2012, with courses that focus on how narratives of crisis operate in contemporary culture, and on how notions of happiness and the good life are informed by ideologies of nationalism and consumerism. My research has been published in Mediations and Topia, on twentieth century avant-gardes and the politics of aesthetic value, the ideology of austerity, and the meaning of Rob Ford. Currently I am helping develop curriculum for Knowing the Land Beneath Our Feet, a digitally-enhanced Indigenous walking tour of UBC’s campus. Click on the RESEARCH tab for more on this project.
