* more potions less prisons *

I am a writer, researcher, and educator based on unceded Indigenous land in Tio’tia:ke / Mooniyang (currently called Monteal, Quebec).

I hold a PhD in Interdisciplinary Humanities from Concordia University and am currently Assistant Professor (LTA) and Area Coordinator of Interdisciplinary Studies and Practices in Fine Arts at Concordia.

My PhD work combined English / Media Studies, Anthropology, and Fine Arts to look at communication with spirits and uncanny kin within contemporary, historical, and fabulated witchcrafts. Through categories of mirrors, knots, and fluids, I examine how the tools and techniques of witchcraft destabilize concepts of the “self,” the fixity of signs, and biases around who and what can and cannot communicate, as well as in what ways this communication materializes.

In my work in general, I am interested in approaching questions concerning the secretive or the occulted through embodied research.
