I am Assistant Professor of Teaching in the Department of English Language and Literatures and Chair of CAP. My research has focused on contemporary American literature and its relation to crisis and memory; currently I am working on a project that examines pedagogies of poetry and suggests methods for incorporating cultural studies of poetry into the classroom. I have essays published in English Studies in CanadaMemory Studies, Tulsa Studies in Women’s Literature and Pedagogy. In 2019, I received a TLEF grant to undertake a teaching and learning initiative entitled, “Speaking in the Disciplines: A “Precedents” Archive for Teaching and Learning Oral Genres.” Through my work in CAP, as a faculty fellow in Jump Start, and with the Academic Essentials online bridging program, I am invested in the first-year experience at UBC.
