Welcome to my site. I am an Associate Professor of English and Cultural, Social, and Political Thought at the University of Victoria.

I obtained my BA (hons) from Simon Fraser University, and my MA and PhD from Queen’s University at Kingston. I have been teaching at the University of Victoria since 2001. I am past Director of the interdisciplinary graduate concentration in Cultural, Social, and Political Thought (through July 2008), and past Graduate Adviser in English (through December 2010). In the fall of 2013 I was elected 2nd Vice President of the Modernist Studies Association; I will accede to the office of Vice President in 2014, and the office of President in 2015.

I like ice cream, single-malt scotch, and books that make you go, “Heh-heh-heh. Wait, what?” Oh, and I also curse in class — probably more than I really should.
