Course Syllabi


Journalism, mass communication, media studies.
M.A., Journalism, University of Western Ontario. M.A. English, McMaster University (Ontario, Canada). B.A. English, University of Windsor (Ontario, Canada)
I have worked at daily newspapers and won awards for reporting on urban affairs and economics. I believe strongly that the protections in the First Amendment are crucial to a free society.

My classroom is a dynamic space where we exchange ideas freely and celebrate teaching and learning.
