My research focuses on intersections of representation, ethics, affect, and politics. I specialize in the American and British nineteenth century but am also interested in contemporary gentrification and in the role of emotion in political experience and expression. I was nominated for Trent University’s Symons Teaching Award (2019), and I have published a collection of poetry Spit on the Devil (Mansfield Press, 2017) and a memoir, Here We Are Among the Living (Tightrope Books, 2012).
