Today we're joined by Dr. Neta Gordon, Professor with the Department of English Language and Literature. We talk about her passion for teaching, particularly first year courses, and her recently published book, Bearers of Risk: Writing Masculinity in Contemporary English-Canadian Short Story Cycles (McGill-Queens, 2022). We talk about her work on author Ann-Marie MacDonald, the research and publishing process, graduate student research assistantships, and literary geography. Neta also shares some insight into her past work as Associate Dean Undergraduate Student Affairs and Curriculum for the Faculty of Humanities (2018-2022) and the place of academic integrity at all stages of research and scholarship.
