Supervisory and research interests

As a Lecturer, I do not normally supervise above the level of Honours projects. I am, however, always willing to serve as a sounding board for developing ideas in Canadian Drama, Native Literatures, and Popular Culture—the fields I have published in.

Courses taught

I regularly teach in the areas of Non-fiction Writing, Canadian Drama, Popular Culture, Literature and History, and Native Literature. I have also taught for the Drama Department and the Faculty of Native Studies.
