Christina Turner

Christina Turner grew up in Toronto and spent five years in Halifax, where she earned a BA from the University of King's College. She then picked up and moved to the opposite side of the continent, completing her MA in English at the University of British Columbia in September 2013. She likes to talk about postcolonial literatures, the politics of food and #alt-ac, and gets riled up by cultural appropriation and crotchety columnists who complain about millenials. She lives in Vancouver with her partner and their rabbit, Fred.
