Professional Bio

My research is inspired and informed by the lands that have raised me, specifically Mount Desert Island, Maine and the island of Newfoundland in eastern Canada. These lands belong to the Wabanaki and to the Beothuk and Mi'kmaq, respectively.

Working within the loose parameters of the long nineteenth century on Turtle Island (North America), my work attends to the relationships between women's writing, natural history and ecology, and literatures of various oceanic, islanded, and archipelagic forms. I am particularly interested in how these literary histories and forms intersect with—and often support—the emergence of both American and Canadian settler-colonialisms.
