I did my BA (entirely in French, except for the English lit courses) at Université Sainte-Anne in Church Point, Nova Scotia, obtaining a double major in French and English literature magna cum laude (1996-99). I did my MA at Acadia University in Wolfville, Nova Scotia (1999-2000). My thesis, supervised by Jessica Slights, was entitled "'Sigh no more, ladies': Marriages of Submission in Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew and Much Ado About Nothing". I then taught Postcolonial literature and Composition at Sainte-Anne and Acadia for a year before moving to Trois-Rivières to do the first year of a PhD in Études québécoises at the Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières. In 2002, I moved to McGill University in Montréal and began a PhD in English Literature, specializing in Shakespeare. My compulsory research project (equivalent to comprehensive exams), supervised by Michael Bristol, was entitled "Shakesqueer Separatism: Gendered Nations and Imagined Communities". My doctoral dissertation, supervised by Leanore Lieblein, was entitled "'To be or not to be free': Nation and Gender in Québécois Adaptations of Shakespeare". Upon defending my dissertation in September 2005, I took up a three year postdoctoral research fellowship in Humanities Computing with the Making Publics Project, led by Paul Yachnin in the English department at McGill. In Fall 2008, I began a tenure-track joint appointment in the Deparment of English and the Women's Studies Program at Allegheny College. In Fall 2009, I moved to a tenure-track position in the Hudson Strode Program in Renaissance Studies in the Department of English at the University of Alabama. My current research consists of a book entitled Shakespeare in Québec: Nation, Gender, and Adapation, plus an online, bilingual, critical anthology entitled Shakespeare au/in Québec.
