I moved from Nova Scotia to Vancouver in 1997 to teach at UBC. My teaching and research interests include 19th-21st century literary and cultural studies; Gothic studies (especially Victorian monstrosities and the supernatural, and representations of gender in Gothic film); dystopian and post-apocalyptic narratives, children’s literature; and composition including technical writing. I am co-editor, with Brett Grubisic and Tara Lee, of Blast, Corrupt, Dismantle, Erase: Contemporary North American Dystopian Literature (WLUP 2014).
