Areas of Interest

My research focuses on the histories and pedagogies of writing. I completed my PhD at Simon Fraser University in April 2023. My dissertation and continuing research consider how literature formed as a concept within English vernacular writing and how this categorization influenced university writing pedagogies. To do this work, my research and methods have spanned literary, composition, and educational studies, taking a historical and critical approach to the underlying assumptions about how we conceptualize and teach writing at the post-secondary level.
