Sydney Tyber's MA studies in Ryerson's Literatures of Modernity program (2013-2014) focus on intersections of corporeality in women's literature, avant-garde performance, and contemporary feminist theory. Supported by a SSHRC Joseph-Armand Bombardier Canada Graduate Scholarship, and supervised by Dr. Gammel, Sydney's Master's research paper explores the socio-cultural implications of what she terms "simulated affects" in twentieth century women's writing, by comparing a selection of Mina Loy's modernist poetry and Caroline Bergvall's postmodern performance writing. Sydney holds an Honours BA in English Language and Literature (2013) and a BEd (2013) from Brock University.
