Christine Campana completed her PhD at Western University in 2023. Her doctoral research examined the work of Indigenous, diasporic, and white settler women writers who travel through and away from Canada to illuminate the ways that poetry can reveal how different forms of movement are foundational to the projects of settlement and decolonization. She looks forward to researching, teaching, and supervising in areas including Indigenous literatures, Canadian literature, women’s literature, theory and criticism, poetry/poetics, diaspora studies, and Indigenous-settler relations. As a white settler scholar originally from Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, the land of the Anishnaaabeg and Métis people, she aspires to teach literature in such a way as to encourage students to reflect on their relationships with Indigenous peoples and their lands, including the land of the Lheidli T’enneh First Nation on which they pursue their university studies, from their unique positionalities and perspectives.
