Jentery Sayers

I'm a PhD student in the Department of English and the Cultural, Social and Political Thought programme. I completed a Master's in English at York University and a Master's in Philosophy at the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven in Belgium. My undergrad degree in English Literature was completed at the University of British Columbia.

My research interests centre around the concept of the Misanthropocene or the idea of cultural misanthropy in the era of environmental crisis. This research brings me to the intersection of political ecology, posthumanism and public discourse all with a heavy dose of zombie apocalypse.

I'm also a professional journalist and the managing editor of the independent, non-profit energy and environment magazine DeSmog Canada
