Présentation

Born in Scotland, I emigrated to Canada as a child. I studied French and English literature at the undergraduate level at the University of Western Ontario, and continued to work between the French and English departments at Western to complete an M.A. in comparative Canadian literature. At York University, I did a Ph.D. in English with specializations in Canadian literature and literary theory. My dissertation considered intertextual relations between two contemporary women writers (Nicole Brossard and Lola Lemire Tostevin) and two writers from the first half of the century (Gertrude Stein and Djuna Barnes). In 1993, I joined the editorial collective of Tessera, a magazine whose feminist interventions in culture take the forms of visual art and writing, both critical and creative.

Hired by Université de Montréal in 1993, I was delighted to find myself in an English department in a Francophone university, an institutional location which allows me to move between languages. Living in Quebec also intensifies a sense that I have always had (as an immigrant, as a woman, and as a student of languages) of unstable national belonging. I am very interested in the ways in which such linguistic and identitary instability manifests itself in literary texts. Perhaps for this reason, I work on various forms of cross-border writing including fiction theory, bilingual writing, franco-Ontarian and anglo-Quebec writing. I am currently working on a book-length study of English-language writing in Quebec. In a feminist context, I am interested in intertextual relations between women writers across national borders, in contemporary feminist appropriations of aesthetics of movement and ambivalence such as the baroque, and in understandings of writing, history, ethics, and politics which do not require that the subject adopt a single identity.
