Dr. Angela Failler is Associate Professor of Women’s & Gender Studies and Canada Research Chair in Culture and Public Memory at The University of Winnipeg. She is also a Research Affiliate of the Institute for Women's and Gender Studies, Lead Researcher of the Cultural Studies Research Group, and instructor for the MA Program in Cultural Studies.

Failler's current research is focused on public memory of the 1985 Air India bombings, and difficult knowledge in museum contexts. She is also interested in phenomena at the intersection of culture, embodiment and psychical life and has published writings on anorexia and self-harm in this vein.
