Prior to arriving at The New School in 2008, Kate completed degrees at Trent University, Simon Fraser University, and York University. From 2000 to 2008, she taught at Toronto Metropolitan University on a part-time and, eventually, full-time basis in The Chang School of Continuing Education, Department of English, and Graduate Programme in Communication and Culture.
