My role as a Grant Assistant includes, and is not limited to, constructing budget templates, sharing budget related resources, copyediting applications, curating annotated bibliographies, confirming citations, filling out CV/CCV online forms, and writing précis. While my role does not cover grant development/strategy, professional editing services, or French language writing, I am able to connect applicants with the relevant contact or research partner.
In my other roles as a doctoral candidate and literature instructor in the English and Film Studies Department, I trace the concept of “ally” and consider what it means to be here in amiskwaciwâskahikan (Edmonton Alberta) and Treaty 6 territory in responsible relationship. Reading, writing alongside, and responding to calls to action from Indigenous literatures, students in my courses and I work to imagine new and just pathways toward various forms of liberation.
