Research Interests

I am currently writing a new bibliography text book, A Guide to Research Methods for Graduate Students in English, and a biography of the writer Jack Common. Meanwhile I continue to collect material for a publishing history of the Dictionary of National Biography 1885-1996.

We wish to acknowledge this land on which the University of Toronto operates. For thousands of years it has been the traditional land of the Huron-Wendat, the Seneca, and the Mississaugas of the Credit. Today, this meeting place is still the home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to have the opportunity to work on this land.
