Paul Tyndall

BA (Dalhousie), MA (UofT), PhD (Dalhousie)

I was born in Halifax, Nova Scotia and completed my BA at Dalhousie University and my MA at the University of Toronto, before returning to Dalhousie to complete my PhD in Modern American Literature, with a dissertation on the poetry of Yvor Winters. I have lived on the West Coast since 1990 and taught at the University of British Columbia and Okanagan University College before joining the Department of English at Kwantlen Polytechnic University. My teaching and research interests include 20th century American Literature, film studies, and depictions of mental illness in modern literature and film. I am currently in the process of developing a critical casebook on the novel, Housekeeping by the contemporary novelist, Mary Lynn Robinson.
