Emily Ballantyne is a doctoral candidate in Canadian literature at Dalhousie University, where she has held a Killam Fellowship and a SSHRC Canada Graduate Scholarship.  Her dissertation places Canadian modernist writers—including John Glassco, P.K. Page, A.M. Klein, and Patrick Anderson—in the context of transnational travel writing.  She recently co-edited (with Michèle Rackham Hall and Emily Essert) a special issue on the oeuvre of P.K. Page for Canadian Poetry (Fall/Winter 2014).  Her work has appeared in Canadian Poetry, Studies in Canadian Literature, University of Toronto Quarterly and The Dalhousie Review. She has also contributed chapters to Public Poetics: Critical Issues in Canadian Poetry and Poetics (WLU Press 2015) and, with Zailig Pollock, Archival Narratives for Canada (Fernwood 2011). Currently, she is at work on a collection of Page’s non-fiction prose for the Collected Works of P.K. Page.
