About


Welcome! I’m a white settler scholar and an Assistant Professor of English at Dalhousie University in Mi’kma’ki, the unceded and ancestral territory of the Mi’kmaw people. I was previously the Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR) Digital Humanities Network Postdoctoral Fellow at the Jackman Humanities Institute, University of Toronto.

My research and teaching focus on early modern drama, literature, and culture (ca. 1550-1700 CE). I’m also interested in book history, digital humanities, law and literature, performance studies, and gender and sexuality studies. I’ve written on some of these topics for the journals English Literary Renaissance, Studies in Philology, Eighteenth-Century Studies, Milton Studies, and Early Theatre. A full list of publications and awards can be found in my CV.

For info about recent and upcoming talks (including audio recordings), see Presentations; visit my Teaching page for information on my courses. I welcome inquiries regarding MA/PhD supervision, and I’m especially invested in supporting the work of first-generation and/or low-income students.
