Jordan Bolay studies questions of trace—the politics of presence in the archive—as a doctoral candidate in the University of Calgary’s English Department. His readings and writings sprawl across the imagined boundaries, metaphorical grey zones, and ideological hinterlands of the creative and the critical, the original and the adapted. In addition to his dissertation on Robert Kroetsch, Katherine Govier, and Guy Vanderhaeghe’s fonds, Jordan is currently working on a number of creative-critical projects including translational poetry, adapted medieval drama, and creative essays. His poetry has appeared in Found (Malform Press, 2016) and his fiction has appeared in NōD (vol. 21, 2017).
