about me

My name is Brenna Clarke Gray, and I teach in the Department of English at Douglas College, just outside of Vancouver, Canada. I also work with the Digital Cultures Lab at Douglas College as Associate Director.  I occasionally do other things around the College, too.

I have a PhD from the University of New Brunswick, where I studied Canadian Literature and first fell in love with the Digital Humanities. I have an MA from Carleton University, where I studied American Literature and was trained in pedagogy by the Centre for Initiatives in Education.

I teach multi-modal and traditional-delivery courses in literature and academic writing. I conceive of literature widely (think: storytelling) and privilege cultural literacy over more traditional conceptions of what it means to be a reader.

You can see what my multi-modal classroom spaces look like by clicking here.

Come chat with me on Twitter. One time I wrote a tweet about Jon Stewart’s retirement that went viral and got me on the BBC World Service, and you can listen to it here if you like.

I talk too much on the internet and have a not-very-traditional approach to my research.

Oh, and I sing in a band, too.
