I hold a PhD from McMaster University, where I wrote a dissertation on Seamus Heaney and Thomas Kinsella. I was hired at the University of Alberta in 2001 as a specialist in the area of Irish Studies.
My current research focuses on representations of space and environments in modernist literature. I also have an interest in the nineteenth-century Irish press and the formation of Irish nationalism during that period.
I teach courses in Irish literature at the graduate and undergraduate level. I also teach a 200 level course on postcolonialism and another on textuality.
This variable content course introduces methods of literary research as an in-depth process through one or more case studies. Not to be taken by students with *6 in approved junior English. This course can only be taken once for credit. Note: refer to the Class Schedule and the Department of English and Film Studies website for specific topics.
Selected works from the Irish context. Content and period focus may vary. Prerequisite: *6 of junior English, or *3 of junior English plus WRS 101 or 102.
