About

My name is Ariel Kroon, and I am a doctoral candidate in the department of English and Film Studies at the University of Alberta. My area of research is Canadian post-apocalyptic science fiction published between 1948 and 1989, and it was funded by a Joseph-Armand Bombardier Canada Graduate Scholarship until just recently. I live and blog on amiskwacîwâskahikan / Treaty Six territory aka the traditional territory of the Papaschase Cree, as well as home to many Métis and other Indigenous peoples, and I am grateful to be on this land.

I completed my MA at Wilfrid Laurier University in English and Film studies in 2015 and produced a major research paper, funded by the Ontario Graduate Scholarship, evaluating feminist theories of the embodied post-human through a reading of Margaret Atwood’s MaddAddam trilogy. I retain an avid interest in genetic engineering, cybernetics, and a lingering aversion to mass-produced meat products.

This blog started as a project for a first-year PhD course in Digital Humanities; since then it has morphed slightly, not least in format.
