Short Bio

Christopher Brown is a Ph.D. candidate in English Literature and Creative Writing at the University of Calgary. Born and raised in Regina, he completed his Bachelor of Arts (Honours) through Luther College before pursuing his Masters in Creative Writing at Concordia University. His SSHRC-funded dissertation, Piles of Bones: Fading Memory and the Spectres of Settler Colonialism, is a book-length work of creative non-fiction which uses a fragmented narrative to complicate the relationship between the narratorial “I,” stories of familial past, and documented history within the scope of Canada’s long-baked system of colonization. Christopher’s research interests include literatures of the Prairies and Northern Canada, Indigenous literature, genre and genre experimentation, archival studies, and colonial/decolonial studies.
