Biographical Notes

Tyler's Masters Research Paper, "When Queer Meets World: Affect, Narcissism, Reparation," was funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada. His research explores the challenges that many queer people experience as they begin the long and arduous journey of learning how to live with their queerness in the social world. Recently, he has begun theorizing how self-reflexive archival practices in autobiographical narrative allow queer subjects to apprehend and transition into external reality.

Beyond teaching in the academy, Tyler has been employed as a yoga, tennis, and swimming instructor.
