In 2017 my publications transitioned from mostly academic articles to mostly short news stories for the NB Media Co-op, a member-run organization. I’ve written more than 100 short stories on labour, feminist, political and environmental issues for the Co-op; you can read them here.

All my other publications since 1994 are listed on this page. These include academic and research publications as well as news and magazine articles in publications other than the NB Media Co-op. Scroll down and click on the publication title to open a pdf in a new page – to read or download.

Most of my research publications are co-written with graduate students, partners, collaborators and community collaborators. Thank you – meegwetch – woliwon – to all my co-authors.

To find a particular publication, you can search for a word in the title. You can also sort the list by year or by type of publication (journal article, book chapter, book, report, conference paper and proceedings, news, magazine).

You are welcome to email me If you would like to discuss any of my work.
