Bruce joined the English department in Fall 2015. He is an alumnus of Dalhousie University, where he took his BSc. Honours in Neuroscience, and McGill University, where he took his PhD in English. He is a specialist in medieval literature, particularly in first millennium manuscripts in Anglo-Saxon England. He is co-author of the grammar text, Drout's Quick and Easy Old English (2012), and assisted editing The Postmodern Beowulf: A Critical Casebook (2006). He is currently working as co-editor on Beowulf as Children's Literature: Studies in Adaptation; in this forthcoming anthology, he traces the illustrations in these works as they reflect the gendered historical reception of the poem. He also figures he has the world's largest collection of versions of Beowulf adapted for children (80 and counting). Bruce has taught previously at Université Laval, Concordia, McGill, Carleton, Bishop's, and Saint Lawrence College in Quebec City. His teaching interests include medieval literature, history of the book, poetry, science and literature, children's literature, and cinéma.
