I am a fourth year doctoral candidate completing research in the fields of feminist, queer and literary theory. My SSHRC funded dissertation entitled Bleeding from Your Fingers: Corporeal Ethics, Embodied Theory and Short Fiction by Canadian Women in English explores female-identified bodies in two collections of short stories. I have presented at conferences both here and away including Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences and a forthcoming presentation at Virginia Tech in April 2012. I have also published internationally in RIAS: Review of American InternationalStudies.
In addition to writing my dissertation, I am a Per-Course Instructor at MUN, manage St. John’s first queer and allies choir and volunteer with a free learn to run group for junior high aged girls. I am also interested in the ways in which knowledge is produced corporeally and own and operate the website Corporeal Knowledge.
