Key Research Interests and Expertise

My current research project considers how contemporary Indigenous fiction traces a clear trajectory between the kinds of attitudes that enabled the genocide of settler colonialism and of the slave trade, the development of capitalism and its increasingly evaluation of life of all kinds as expendable, and the kinds of myopic and irresponsible behaviours that drive climate crisis; and how these texts also present traditional Indigenous cultural understandings as one way to challenge and overturn ecologically and communally damaging colonial and capitalist ways of living.
