Recherche, création/Research and Creative Work

Membre du Centre de recherche interuniversitaire sur la littérature et la culture québécoises (CRILCQ)


Dr. Tulloch’s research interests are two-fold: the relationship between literature and environmental concerns and the relationship between literature and film. Her current ecocritical interests focus on narratives of ecological disruption, biodiversity loss, or extinction, and memoirs bearing witness to these issues. In light of the planetary nature of these problems, this research has been leading to comparative work between Canadian and other national literatures to provide wider context. Her research has also examined the politics of cinematic adaptation, with a focus on adaptations of Canadian literature by a major cultural institution, the National Film Board of Canada. This research involved the study of English- and French-language adaptations of Canadian literature. Drawing on theories of adaptation, this research was concerned with issues of representation as well as the intersection of literature with both historical narrative and socio-cultural policy.
