Jeremy De Chavez, Ph.D. is an Assistant Professor of English at the University of Macau. While his research and teaching areas are primarily in Postcolonial Studies, Global Anglophone Literature, and Critical/Cultural Theory, he is committed to being a strategic generalist with wide-ranging interests across literary periods, genres, and cultural forms.
This is tough. Was raised and educated in the UK, moved to Spain in the 80s. Lived in New York for a couple of years, the only place that has ever felt like ‘home’. Research/intellectual interests: African American studies, cultural studies, postcolonial studies – any intellectual inquiry into otherness. Also very interested in exceptionalizing paradigms, whether in the positive or negative sense. Look forward to productive sharing. Saludos.
