Full Professor of English, Bishop's University

A leading scholar of archival theory and Canadian women’s writing, I am currently the Jack and Nancy Distinguished Visiting Scholar at Simon Fraser Univresity and a Full Professor of English at Bishop’s University in Quebec. In January 2016, under the auspices of a Sproul Fellowship, I served as a Visiting Scholar at University of California, Berkeley, where I embarked on my current research project related to Jane Rule. Shortly thereafter, in September 2016, I served as the Craig Dobbin Chair of Canadian Studies, at the University College Dublin (UCD), Ireland; this position has rotated between specialists of Canadian Studies since its inception in 1992 in fields that encompass literature, history, political science, and geography. My book, Moving Archives (WLUP 2020) won the Gabrielle Roy Prize; On the Other Side(s) of 150 (WLUP 2021) won the Canadian Studies Network Prize; Unarrested Archives (UTP 2014) was a Finalist for the Gabrielle Prize (2015); and my edition of Jane Rule's Taking My Life (Talon 2011) for a LAMBDA Prize (2012).
