Dr. Cheryl Lousley is Lakehead University Research Chair in the Environmental Humanities, and Associate Professor at Lakehead University Orillia, cross-appointed to the departments of English and Interdisciplinary Studies. My focus is contemporary Canadian, Indigenous, postcolonial, and global environmental justice writing and cultural studies. I am currently working on a book manuscript entitled, Promised World, Earthly Democracy: The Public Hearings of the World Commission on Environment and Development. My research on cultural forms and practices of global identity during the rise of globalization and sustainable development has been published in Globalizations, Environmental Communication, Resilience, and Global Ecologies and the Environmental Humanities: Postcolonial Approaches. My literary essays appear in The Oxford Handbook of Ecocriticism and Greening the Maple: Canadian Ecocriticism in Context, among other places. I am Carson Fellow alumni of the Rachel Carson Center for Environment and Society, Munich, and I have also had the opportunity to be an IASH fellow at the Edinburgh Environmental Humanities Network and a Fulbright Canada Research Chair in the English Department at the University of California, Santa Barbara. I am a Past President of the Association for Literature, Environment, and Culture in Canada (ALECC) and the founding series editor for the Environmental Humanities book series published by Wilfrid Laurier University Press since 2007.
