Spring 2020, PhD Dissertation: My PhD project focuses on twentieth- and twenty-first century Indigenous women's writing in Canada, and interrogates the ways in which works of Indigenous literature (including E. Pauline Johnson's Legends of Vancouver and Maria Campbell's Halfbreed) have historically been subject to destructive editing practices. My dissertation reassesses these works through a decolonial and digital critical framework, using elements of archival theory, Indigenous studies, and the digital humanities to re-read these texts through a new scholarly lens.
