Research Interests

My research interests are in Canadian literatures and cultures—ecopoetry, environmental literatures, and ecocriticism in particular. My work is also informed by feminist theory and criticism, as well as anti-racist and decolonizing theories. My broader reading and research interests include speculative fiction, “didactic” poetry, and literatures about knowledge and education.
