Roxanne Korpan

Roxanne L. Korpan is a doctoral student in the Department for the Study of Religion and the Collaborative Program in Book History and Print Culture at the University of Toronto. She completed her MA in Religious Studies and BA Honours, majoring in Religious Studies with High Honours, at the University of Regina. Roxanne’s dissertation research focuses on the translation, publication, and distribution of the Christian Bible in nineteenth-century Canada, where she examines how this book and the Christian mythos therein were mobilized as a “colonial agent.” She analyzes the Bible in the context of colonial book production and print culture to ask: How did colonial ideologies and material and economic infrastructures support Bible publishing and dissemination? How, in turn, did these bibles support colonial projects of assimilation to Christian and Anglo Canadian national identity? Roxanne is also a Teaching Assistant and peer mentor with the Department for the Study of Religion at the University of Toronto; editorial assistant of Symposia: The Journal of the Department for the Study of Religion, University of Toronto; a letterpress Printing Apprentice in the Massey College Bibliography Room at the University of Toronto; and a professional contemporary dance artist.
