Graduate Research Assistant

University of Guelph

Elizabeth earned her Bachelor of Arts in English Literature at the University of Guelph and is currently working toward a Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing at the University of Guelph at Humber. She is interested, particularly, in the work of language and sound as a means toward voicing the socio-political. Thematically, her works place feelings of anti-consumerism within popular culture, but also aim to express family, functionality, and the natural world as relational, in poetic attempts to map rather than say. Much of this work riffs off visual art and journalistic materials.

Listening itself, an improvisative act engaged in by everyone, announces a practice of active engagement with the world, where we sift, interpret, store and forget, in parallel with action and fundamentally articulated with it ("Mobilitas Animi" 113).
