Teaching

My teaching fields include modern and contemporary North American literature, culture, and intellectual history; poetry and poetics; critical race theory; gender and sexuality studies; decolonial literatures and pedagogies; composition and creative writing; and publishing and book design.

In literature and writing classes alike, I aim to teach a wide range of materials that require us to hold in mind and action both what we have in common with one another and what we might experience very differently. I also encourage my students, regardless of the particular course or assignment, to honour and write through the value of their own experiences and to imagine new possibilities for how research might be undertaken and presented.
