MemberGraham Jensen

I am a SSHRC Postdoctoral Fellow in English at the University of Victoria in British Columbia, Canada. My research interests include literary modernism, twentieth-century Canadian literature, poetry and poetics, and digital humanities research and methodologies. I am also principal investigator of the Canadian Modernist Magazines Project and a former graduate fellow with Editing Modernism in Canada. At the University of Victoria, I also hold an Associate Fellowship in the Centre for Studies in Religion and Society as well as a Digital Scholarship Fellowship in the Electronic Textual Cultures Lab.

MemberDeborah C. Bowen

I spent the first half of my life in the U.K. and the second half in Canada. My undergraduate degree is from Oxford, and my doctoral degree from the University of Ottawa. Since 1996 I’ve taught at Redeemer University College, a small liberal arts college in S.W. Ontario. My two books consider interactions between postmodern literature and Christian faith, partly because these seem so unlikely. I regularly review Canadian poetry, and love walking and classical music, sometimes together.
