Lisa brings a cultural studies background and lens to her research and writing with Dr. Tait's group: she received her Master of Arts with the department of English and Cultural Studies at McMaster University and is a proud alumni of the University of Saskatchewan departments of English (B.A.) and Women’s and Gender Studies.
Major projects include theorizing vegetarianism and privileged ethical food practices that connects environmental issues and hunger locally – globally, shared at the John Douglas Taylor Archive and Everyday Life Theory Conference.
Lisa has been involved with several projects through Dr. Tait’s research with the IPHRC and the Mental Health Commission First Nations and Inuit Advisory Committee, including the ethical toolkit and cultural safety projects, and is a go-to for editing and writing assignments. In the fall, Lisa helped to present at and organize a knowledge translation community-reporting day, to discuss issues about Methadone Assisted Recovery in Saskatchewan.
While doing casual work at the Saskatoon Public Library public service desks, Lisa enjoys helping patrons with reference questions, technology troubles, and finding the right novel. Current volunteering with Frontier College-partnered community schools, and former work with ESL students, from abroad and through the Open Door Society, have led to her interest in literacy supports and promotion.
