Dr. Dionne Brand

English professor Dr. Dionne Brand and her latest poetry collection Nomenclature: New and Collected Poems are featured in a February issue of The New York Review of Books.  

The piece examines how Brand “has taken the colonial history of the Americas not just as a theme, but as an ethical imperative.” 

A renowned poet, novelist and essayist, Brand has been honoured with many awards for her work including the Governor General’s Award for Poetry and the Trillium Prize for Literature. Her research interests in the School of English and Theatre Studies in the College of Arts include social justice and issues of gender and race.
