Bio/Research

I teach courses on gender and sexuality in fairy tales, contemporary fairy tales and popular culture, and vampire literature and films. I also teach short stories, the history of women in literature, contemporary women writers, and film adaptations of literature by women.

My research interests include fairy tales and fairy tale films, feminist literary theory, film theory, representations of women and adultery, Canadian literature, and representations of women and domestic space in literature. My current research compares traditional and contemporary fairy tales to vampire literature and films with a focus on women’s bodies as monstrous, vampire reproduction and birth, and the transmission of sexual affect.
