Professor of English, Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, Athabasca University

I am a professor of English at Athabasca University, where I am studying representations of sleep in Canada. My new book Restless in Sleep Country: Imagination and the Cultural Politics of Sleep is now available from McGill-Queen's University Press.

My previous book, Nature’s Broken Clocks: Reimagining Time in the Face of the Environmental Crisis (U Regina Press, 2020), was a finalist for the Alanna Bondar Memorial Book Prize for the Environmental Humanities and for the ASLE-UKI Book Prize for Ecological Creative Writing. My first book, Timing Canada: The Shifting Politics of Time in Canadian Literary Culture (McGill-Queen's UP, 2015), was a finalist for the Gabrielle Roy Prize.
