Greetings. I’m David Jefferess, currently the chair of the Cultural Studies program at UBC’s Okanagan campus. I’m an associate professor in the Critical Studies department, and I teach courses that are cross-listed as English and Cultural Studies. My area of teaching 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.
