BA (Trent), MA (Queen's)

I was raised in Montreal and travelled all points of the compass before deciding to settle in Vancouver. What I enjoy most about teaching at Kwantlen is the small class size. Everyone who wants to participate in class discussion has the opportunity. This was what my undergraduate university was like when I was a student, and now that I am the one standing at the front of the room, this is how we can keep it lively and fresh. My areas of interest in graduate school were post-colonial literature, Virginia Woolf, the eighteenth century's 'mob of scribbling women' (or so Nathaniel Hawthorne described them in a fit of pique), critical theory, and feminist theory in particular. My current focus is on Canadian and British fiction and on the scholarship of teaching and learning.
