Since beginning to teach with English and Film Studies in 2009, I have taught a range of undergraduate courses organized around themes which include the 'animal' in literature, the 'other', and representations of the body. I have also taught global literatures and a theoretical course on race and ethnicity. Most recently, I have been teaching undergraduate courses introducing Indigenous literatures as a field of study, children's literature, research methods, and critical analysis. In fall and winter semesters of 2019-20, I will be teaching courses in these areas with English and Film Studies, as well as Writing Studies 101 with the Transition Year Program. While I teach texts from a range of historical periods, I particularly enjoy working with contemporary American and Indigenous women's fiction and auto/biography in my classes, and it is here that my teaching and research interests tend to intersect. My teaching philosophy is informed by feminist pedagogical approaches which take into account the importance of working toward a decolonized university. I was honoured to receive the William Hardy Alexander Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching in 2017.
