Roxanne Korpan

Roxanne Korpan is a doctoral candidate 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 and BA (Honours) in the Department of Religious Studies at the University of Regina. Roxanne is interested in histories of religion and colonialism in North America and imbrications of religion and media in colonial contexts. Her dissertation research focuses on the translation, publication, and circulation of Indigenous-language bibles in nineteenth-century Canada. Specifically, she examines how bible translation relied on intimate relations and collaborations between settler missionaries and indigenous people in local contexts and how these bibles represented white, British, and Christian supremacy in British imperial contexts. This research is supported in part by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada. Roxanne is also a letterpress printer in the Massey College Bibliography Room at the University of Toronto and a professional contemporary dance artist.
