Greetings. I’m David Jefferess, currently the chair of the Cultural Studies program at UBC’s Okanagan campus. I’m an assistant professor in the Critical Studies department, and I teach courses that are cross-listed as English and Cultural Studies. My area is postcolonial literature and culture, including colonial discourse, decolonization, and globalization.
This blog is part of the Cultural Studies blog collective, a group of blogs kept by faculty and students involved with the Cultural Studies program at the Okanagan campus. In this blog I seek to engage with current issues in a way that highlights ongoing colonial relations of power and the research of scholars working in the fields of postcolonial studies, critical race and anti-oppression studies, etc.
