Amy is also interested in the Environmental Humanities and is currently working on a research-creation project that traces the affects and effects of wildfires in Manitoba's Whiteshell Provincial Park. This project is part of the SSHRC-funded "Mobilizing Disability Survival Skills for the Urgencies of the Anthropocene" project (P.I. Arseli Dokumaci).
