Along with my research into representations of science in Canadian literature, I am presently working on an edition of Marius Barbeau’s novel The Downfall of Temlaham, considering issues related to databases and editing, and questioning the role of technology in the construction of Indigenous archives. In order to better understand the role of technology in action I am currently attempting to learn Gitsenimx through online dictionaries.
