My research focuses primarily on how drama, an aesthetic art form and multimodal literacy practice, can be used to examine differences of race, class, gender, and sexuality in schools with multiracial student populations. Much of my work has examined these issues in Francophone minority language schools outside Quebec; however, my focus has recently expanded to explore representational practices in musical theatre productions at English and French immersion schools in the prairies and on professional stages. I am also collaborating with two elementary school teachers and my colleague, Dr. Joël Thibeault, on a project examining how drama can be used to teach French in Francophone schools. My research interests lie at the crossroads of anti-racist and decolonizing pedagogies, drama and cultural production, literacy, and minority language education.
