  • I am a professor, critic, editor, teacher, and, most recently, in collaboration with contemporary Canadian poets, compiler of digital archives. I have published several books, many book chapters, many articles and reviews and have edited several special issues of journals. For more information, see my website here. The digital tool I use most regularly is the template for preparing digital archives of public art provided to me by The Artmob Project at York University.


Please provide a short description of the larger project from which this story emerges.
  • My interest in participating in CWRC has developed out of my work as compiler of [1] The Fred Wah Digital Archive, and my collaboration with Montreal poet, translator, and public intellectual Erín Moure on The Erín Moure Digital Archive as Living Knowledge Site.
