Andrea’s current research focuses on competing definitions of “seriousness” in modern and contemporary culture through the lenses of critical race studies, feminist and gender studies, decolonial pedagogy, North American intellectual history, and poetics. She aims to teach a wide range of materials that require us to hold in mind and action both what we have in common with one another and what we might experience very differently.

From 2015-17 Andrea edited the literary and visual arts journal The Capilano Review while overseeing its extensive community programming. Some of her own criticism and poetry can be found in World PictureThe Poetic FrontPelt, and Fence.
