Karolle Wall is an Associate Professor in Critical + Cultural Studies. As well as teaching Literature, Academic Writing, Humanities and Environmental Ethics, she is the Coordinator of the Emily Carr Writing Centre, where she helps students hone their writing, critical thinking and research skills. Her research interests include Contemporary Poetics, Image & Text, 18th & 19th Century Art History & Literature, Print Culture, Rhetoric, Environmental Rhetoric, Environmental Ethics, and indigenous relationships to the landscape, water, the sea. Her most recent film 'imush q'uyatl'un, was made in collaboration with Florence James, a Penelaxuuth elder. Her praxis is an expression of her political belief that through art and social action humans can come to see and understand the fragility and the beauty of the non-human life that exists on the margins, in intertidal zones, in that crucial, liminal space where nature meets the industrialized world.
