About Me

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.


Research

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.


Teaching

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.
