Christian Bok

Lecturer in Literary Studies

At the University of Calgary, I have supervised four PhD dissertations and four MA dissertations to completion. All dissertations have passed their examinations successfully — and two of the MA dissertations have resulted in the publication of books, one of which went on to win a major award. I have also supervised five Honours projects to completion with commendation.
