I'm a Professor and the Associate Chair of Graduate Studies in the Department of English and Film Studies at the University of Alberta. My major areas of research are auto/biography and life writing, popular culture and North American literature. I have other interests in book history and publishing, as well as online forms of identity construction, graphic memoirs and video gaming. I am committed to researching what ordinary people think, do and write about their lives.
