Nancy Taber, PhD, is an Associate Professor in the Faculty of Education at Brock University. She teaches in the areas of critical adult education, sociocultural contexts of schooling, and learning gender in a militarized world. Her work often draws on her experiences serving in the Canadian military as a Sea King helicopter air navigator. Nancy's research includes a critique of militarism from the standpoint of military mothers, an analysis of the ways in which discourses of militarism intersect with academia in higher education, and an exploration of gendered issues of militarism in fiction and popular culture. Nancy is a member of the Canadian Association for the Study of Adult Education (CASAE) as well as the Niagara Branch of the Canadian Authors Association (CAA). She is currently using the genre of short creative fiction to explore the complexities of women’s lives.
