I first came to Laurier Brantford in 2005, fresh out of my PhD at Western University, and immediately found a home here. I was tenured in 2009, and appointed Associate Dean in July of 2013. I teach both in English and in the MA program in Cultural Analysis and Social Theory.
I work on medieval and postcolonial literatures and cultural theory. My current research focuses on the rapidly growing corpus of queer literature from the Caribbean diaspora and its construction in international theoretical discourses, the place of pornography in contemporary Western culture, and the construction of nationalism in England during the Middle Ages. I am also co-editor (along with Shalini Puri, of the University of Pittsburgh) of the academic book series New Caribbean Studies.
I am qualified and willing to supervise graduate students in the areas of Caribbean and postcolonial literatures, medieval literature, contemporary cultural theory and queer studies.
