Currently On Leave

I received my Ph.D. in English from UBC in 2011 and have taught literature and academic writing here since 2010. My scholarly research is situated at the intersection of poetry, cultural studies, and memory studies. My current research explores the cultural and memorial work of contemporary conceptual poetry as well as innovative pedagogies for poetry teaching. I have essays on literature and memory published in English Studies in Canada, Memory Studies and Tulsa Studies in Women’s Literature. I also hold an M.A. in Creative Writing from Concordia University and am the author of a book of poems, Ragtime for Beginners (Killick, 2008). You can find out more about me at
