Researcher – School of Humanities, Keele University
Leverhulme International Academic Fellowship
I have worked at Keele University since completing my PhD at the University of Southampton in 1999. To date, my research has focused on literary cartographies, notably in the post 1960 francophone Quebecois novel, and more recently, anglophone Quebec and Canadian fiction. I teach modules on the Canadian Metropolis (Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver novels) and on Writingscapes (spatial theory and creative writing on space and place). Throughout my career, I have been interested in relationships between material and imaginary geographies, and hope that taking up participatory methodologies will offer new perspectives on these.
