Norah Bowman, a settler-colonial writer originally from Texada Island, BC, is a professor of English Literature and Gender Studies at Okanagan College, on Syilx territory (Kelowna, BC). Bowman has a PhD in English and film studies from the University of Alberta. Her co-authored book Amplify: Graphic Narratives of Feminist Resistance (2019) tells stories of feminist resistance and liberation movements worldwide, and her academic research focusses on unsettling colonial resource extraction. Bowman’s poetry often reflects on human and non-human connections, including connections to place, water, plants, and animals.
