Bio

Ken Huynh (PhD, University of Toronto, 2020) is a teacher and scholar. Trained as an interdisciplinary cultural studies critic and researcher, his research focuses on racialization and social difference in contemporary nation-states.

Focused especially on structures of representation and feeling, he is particularly interested on how activists and artists provide teacherly and educational examples with their work and art. His pedagogy, research and writing attempts to discusses these interrelated issues in a complex but accessible manner.

At its core, most of my teaching practice centres on using culture to compel students to question what they've assumed to be normal and forever-is and will-be.

I pride myself on providing challenging but comfortable classrooms. I am a demanding but attentive teacher. The baseline values of my classroom are respect and integrity. That said, I employ humour: I tease my students and myself (a lot).
