Before joining the Department of French and Francophone Studies at UVic in July of 2019, Pierre-Luc Landry taught at the Cégep de l’Outaouais, at the Université Laval, at the University of Ottawa and at the Royal Military College of Canada. His research focuses on contemporary literature of various geographical areas (mostly Québec, Canada and France), and on Indigenous literature written in French. He specializes in research-creation—understood as an “undisciplined” methodology—and on queer theories and cultural studies. Trained in the field of narratology, he expanded his theoretical standpoint to include feminist and cultural critics in his toolbox to explore and examine art and literature, and their relationship with society. He is also a writer, a publisher, and a queer activist. His work was shortlisted for many prizes and received different national accolades.

As a white settler born on Abenaki territory, in southeastern Québec, he is humbled and thankful to have the opportunity to teach, write, and think on the unceded Coast Salish territories of the Lək̓ʷəŋən and WSÁNEĆ peoples.
