New Peer-Reviewed Article in Print!

Back in the spring of 2003 I was finishing up my Master’s at the University of Toronto; I was already accepted into the Ph.D. program there, and I handed in one of my final essays focusing on the career of Saskatchewan writer, Andrew Suknaski.

My prof in that course loved the paper and suggested that I submit it for publication. At that time, I hadn’t even started thinking about publications and being a serious academic, but I was ambitious and excited by her suggestion. That essay turned into my first peer-reviewed article “Andrew Suknaski and the Literary Canon,” published in 2005 with the Journal of Ukrainian Studies.

In the following years I finished my Ph.D., a postdoc, and even landed a tenure-track job, publishing along the way. When I finally realized that I wanted more out of life than that of a career academic, I started to wind down my publication efforts.

My final article as I pull myself away from the academy has just been published, some 10 years after that first professional output. This article, “’White Settler Guilt’: Contemporary Ukrainian Canadian Prairie Literature” with the Journal of Canadian Ethnic Studies looks at the complicated relationship between settler-invader Ukrainian Canadians and postcolonial aboriginal subjects across the Canadian landscape.

I have no other journal articles in the works, and it looks like my scholarly output is coming to its close as I move onto other chapters in life. I hope, however, that if you are interested in identity politics and literature in Canada, or in Ukrainian Canadian literature, you will check out some of the links on my articles page and use these ideas in your own thinking and research on these topics.
