I am an Assistant Professor in the School of English and Theatre Studies at the University of Guelph. I am also the author of Blackening Canada: Diaspora, Race, Multiculturalism and a number of articles on topics in Canadian Literature, Black diasporic writing, and digital humanities.

I am a co-investigator on a SSHRC Insight Development Grant entitled “Reading Digital Canadas” that studies the relationship between how Canadians read and the digital forums in which they discuss books.

My writing appears in a number of venues including Canadian Literature, ARIEL, Topia, The Walrus, The National Post, The Literary Review of Canada, and The Puritan.

I am currently editing ‘Membering Austin Clarke, a collection of essays, reflections and interviews on Austin Clarke. I am also editing, with Sarah Roger, Canadian Digital Humanities, a collection of essays on the relationship between Canadian studies and digital scholarship and creative work. I am also writing a second monograph, The Map & The Territory, a study of the discourses of humanism and cosmopolitanism that have shaped Canadian Literature.
