Campus Saint-Jean

Broadly, I teach in the areas of English and Comparative Literature, Canadian Studies, Cultural studies, Film and Media Studies, Petrocultures and Energy Humanities, and Rhetoric and Writing Studies Pedagogy. More specifically, my teaching focuses on representations of social justice issues in literature, film and media, often from an intersectional feminist perspective.

I am interested in visual and textual resistance narratives and the reception of those discourses within the larger matrix of white colonial patriarchy, as people seek justice, whether it is around historical injustices around gender, race and class, such as the historical experiences of women, the internment of “enemy aliens” during the Second World War, or ongoing practices of exclusion that are part and parcel of twenty-first century Canadian and global oil culture.
