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.
