Area of expertise

Canadian literature

I specialize in Canadian literature, especially twentieth-century and contemporary Canadian literature. My interests are quite wide-ranging: my dissertation and postdoctoral work focused on Canadian literary regionalism and spatial theory, though I've also had long-standing interests in Canadian literary history, ethnic minority writing, Native literature, and the formal and theoretical preoccupations of postmodern writing. I'm currently focusing on the relationship between writing and trauma.

My work has been published in Studies in Canadian Literature, Painting the Maple: Essays on Race, Gender and the Construction of Canada, and Mosaic.
