I received my PhD in Political Science from York University in Toronto in 1996 and my MA (with Distinction) and my BA (with honours) from the University of Canterbury in Christchurch, New Zealand. I was born and raised in Christchurch and came to Canada as an international student in 1990 in order to study for my PhD.
After receiving my PhD, I was awarded a SSHRC post-doctoral fellowship to take at The Literature Program, Duke University, in North Carolina, 1996-98. After returning to Canada, I taught at York University.
In 2001, I attended The School of Criticism and Theory, Cornell University, 25th Summer Session: June 18-July 27.
In 2002, I was appointed Assistant Professor in the Communication Studies department at the University of Windsor, Ontario. I joined the Communication Studies department here at Laurier in 2005 as Associate Professor.
