Sara Matthews is Associate Professor in Communication Studies at Wilfrid Laurier University. Working primarily in the field of research-creation, her projects explore the intersections between visual culture and martial politics as well as how communities craft creative modes of relationality and survival in response to practices of state securitization. In addition to her scholarly writing, Sara curates aesthetic projects that archive the ways in which encounters with conflict and loss emerge as new forms of futurity, materiality and placemaking. Her critical art writing has appeared in PUBLIC, FUSE Magazine and in exhibition essays for the Robert Langen Gallery, Circuit Gallery, the Ottawa Art Gallery, the Doris McCarthy Gallery and as a blog for Gallery TPW.
