I am interested in the role of imaginative narratives in refugee studies. My research focuses on developing a cultural refugee studies approach to research with the community, media-making, and pedagogy. I recently completed a Social Sciences and Humanities Council Postdoctoral Fellowship in the School of Communication, "Digital Storytelling as a Method for Critical Dialogue on Refugees in Canada" (Simon Fraser University, 2017-2019). This project developed a critical media-making praxis and included video-recording cross-sector interviews and working with an animator to produce educational media. The project’s media outputs will be disseminated through an interactive web site, and I continue to do community education work as the opportunity arises. I am the editor of Countering Displacements: The Creativity and Resilience of Indigenous and Refugee-ed Peoples (2012).Other publications include: "An Intermedial Pedagogy for Sensing Communities of Shared Fate at the Border" (Intermedialities 2020), “Refracting Exoticism in Video Representations of the Victim-Refugee” (Crossings 2018), “R2P and the Novel: The Trope of the Abandoned Refugee Child” (GR2P 2018), and “Rerouting Diaspora Theory with Canadian Refugee Fiction” (Routledge 2009).
