I’m currently a SSHRC Postdoctoral Fellow at the Obama Institute at Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz researching literature, citizenship, and the political value of time. I’ve previously taught at York University and Toronto Metropolitan University in Toronto, Canada. I’m curious about the way we write and imagine citizenship, how literature contributes to the vocabulary of (non)belonging, and what might need to change in how we express political, legal, and cultural affiliation.
I also write fiction and non-fiction. My short stories can be found in various publications, including SAND, Broken Pencil, and The Feathertale Review. My debut novel Vandal Confession was published in 2015 and translated into French in 2017. I’m also an editor and work regularly with Latitude 46 Publishing.
