Summer/Fall 2009: Copy Editor, Critical Studies in Improvisation/Études critiques en improvisation

University of Guelph

Cory Lavender is a PhD student in English at the University of Guelph. His research looks at the Black Loyalists of Nova Scotia towards the end of the eighteenth century. His focus is on the environmental racism that they suffered and how they utilized the Nova Scotian landscape as a platform upon which to resist racial injustice.

...partly because I know that’s the only way that we could solve a creative problem [using improvisation with children ranging in abilities] and what doesn’t work is trying to impose a template on the students who are not able to respond to that template.

– Pauline Oliveros (in working with Abilities First)
