I am a feminist urban social geographer who studies contemporary urban and suburban culture. My research examines the complex relationships of cultural workers and LGBTQ2S populations to cities and suburbs in Canada and Germany with particular attention to questions of identity formation, place-making, spatial politics, and neighbourhood change. Much of my writing has focused on the (sub)urban geographies of artistic labour, creative practice, and cultural production and has involved the development of critiques of creative city theory and cultural planning in their application to small- and mid-sized cities and suburbs. I am especially interested in contested processes of social inclusion and social exclusion in neighbourhoods as triggered by both bottom-up and top-down arts-led urban redevelopment initiatives as well as queer place-making practices. I teach urban geography at the undergraduate and graduate level, and have developed courses on public space contestations and interventions, the cultures of cities, and the spatial politics of urban place-making.

Queering Canadian suburbs: LGBTQ2S place-making outside of central cities

    Summary:

    This research addresses key knowledge gaps regarding the lives, service needs, and place-making practices of suburban Canadian LGBTQ2S (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, Queer, and Two-Spirit) populations. The dearth of attention to sexuality among suburban scholars and the limited investigation of the suburbs by geographers of sexualities means that we know little about the LGBTQ2S populations living there, or how to situate them within changing suburban landscapes. In Canada, this inattention has significant implications: a limited understanding of the spatial, embodied and discursive dimensions of everyday queer lives in suburbia; an inadequate grasp of the support services and the socially inclusive policymaking needed at the municipal and metropolitan scales; and an inability to imagine suburbia as a queer location. This research uses queer and intersectionality theories to document the geographies of queer suburban lives as they intersect with other minority identity markers (e.g., ethnicity, racialization, class, gender, and age) in Toronto, Montreal, and Vancouver.

The new creative edge: how contemporary cultural workers are transforming Canadian suburbs

    Summary:

    This project is an empirical study of cultural production and creative practice in the ‘inner’ and ‘outer’ suburbs of Toronto (Etobicoke and Mississauga) and Vancouver (North Vancouver and Surrey) – two city-regions in Canada with the highest concentrations of people working in cultural and creative occupations. In public and private imagination, artistic creativity is often associated with the energy and intensity of ‘authentic’ places in the centres of large cities. Yet, as scholarly studies and reports commissioned by Canadian arts organizations document, the process of gentrification is steadily erasing spaces of cultural production and displacing artists from downtown artistic neighbourhoods to suburban locations. However, these same studies offer minimal discussion of how artists function as cultural workers on the suburban periphery. This project examines how suburban cultural workers relate to the suburbs as place, but also as expressions of lifestyle and values. The objectives are to investigate the functional advantages and disadvantages of suburban cultural production, the relationship of cultural workers to suburban landscapes and lifestyles, and the impact that cultural workers have on the form and character of Canadian suburbs. It extends scholarly understanding of how the creative process differently unfolds for practicing suburban cultural workers and how it is variously affected through the presence or absence of cultural infrastructure and cultural planning initiatives.
