Bio/Research

Dr. Carter has been a faculty member at the Brantford campus since 2000 and teaches a variety of courses in English such as women’s literature, early Canadian literature, and advanced courses on autobiography and life writing. She has also held a number of administrative positions at the university, including associate vice president of Teaching and Learning, interim dean of the Faculty of Liberal Arts, and one year as the acting Dean of the Brantford campus (2008-2009). She feels especially committed to developing initiatives related to the arts, and to that end had an active role in establishing The Yellow Brick Wall, an exhibition space on campus for art. She was also very actively involved with the development of the Bachelor of Fine and Applied Arts in Game Design and Development.

Dr. Carter researches women's diaries written in Canada, with special attention to those from the 19th century. This has led her to develop expertise in women's writing, 19th-century Canadian culture, Canadian literature, cultural studies, and life writing, especially as it intersects with the narratives of history. She has recently published an article summarizing feminist scholarship on diary writing for an essay collection entitled The Diary: The Epic of Everyday Life (Illinois University Press).
