Visiting Assistant Professor, Department of Liberal Arts

An experienced, adaptable communicator and educator, I am passionately interested in global cultures, people and the issues impacting their lives. My interdisciplinary research across the Humanities and Social Sciences involves world literature; creative writing; gender, sexuality, cultural studies; post-colonialism; ethnography, and arts-based inquiry. Each of these areas draws on my background in discourse analysis and the application of qualitative research methodology and methods, particularly in cross-cultural settings.

I acknowledge the traditional custodians of the lands on which I work and live. I pay my respects to Elders past, present and future, and extend that respect to all First Nations peoples.
