Gillian is interested in myth making, story telling, and sacred narratives. Her dissertation considers the place of epiphanies (divine beings manifesting themselves to humans) in Jewish, Christian, and pagan fiction and novels from the 1st C BCE to the 4th C CE. This project compares ancient beliefs around interactions between humans and the divine, and the consequences (good and bad!) thereof. Gillian is a settler on Musqueam land.
