Bio/Research

A transplanted Winnipeger, I earned my BA (English Honours) at UBC (1985), my MA at University of Toronto (1987), and my PhD at Brandeis University in Boston (1992). My first tenure-track position was at Furman University in Greenville, SC; I returned to UBC in 1995. I was tenured and promoted to associate professor in 2006 (long story there—buy me a drink and I’ll tell all). The English Renaissance is my scholarly neighbourhood, and I’m particularly interested in historicism, feminist theory, poetics, and cultural theory.

I’ve been president of the UBC Faculty Association, the union representing faculty and librarians at UBC, and I currently serve on the Academic Freedom & Tenure Committee of CAUT (our national professors’ organization). I am therefore a fountain of knowledge on all the ways universities can help or hinder their faculty.

My partner, Antony Hodgson, is Director of the Biomedical Engineering program at UBC; I have many two teenagers but NOT a dog. I am a serious amateur singer (VancouverVoices chamber choir) and love my garden, whether or not it loves me back.
