Currently, I am a member of the Culture and Crisis Collective, a small group of interdisciplinary researchers at Carleton University. We hold regular teach-ins on the ethics of pedagogy during crisis.
I am also preparing teaching syllabi on Contemporary art and global crises for the undergraduate level.
Most importantly, I am working full-time on my dissertation research that investigates the intersections between feminist art activism and politics during times of crisis, with special attention to the global covid-19 pandemic of 2020.
