Dr. Paul Emiljanowicz

Office Hours:
Wednesdays, 11:30am – 12:30pm

Dr. Paul Emiljanowicz, who will teach ARTSSCI 3GJ3 / Global Justice Inquiry, is the project manager/managing director of Participedia and a sessional lecturer in the Political Science departments at Wilfrid Laurier University and the University of Waterloo. He is also an active member of the Tshepo Institute for the Study of Contemporary Africa and the Global Development Section of the International Studies Association, as well as a board member for Demo.Reset: Deliberation in the Global South.

Dr. Emiljanowicz’s work is published in Postcolonial Studies [forthcoming], Third World Quarterly, Interventions, Small Axe, Democratization and Routledge, as well as in popular media outlets such as Africa is a Country and The Conversation. He is also completing a major manuscript under a University Press.

His research is focused on contributing to reconceptualizing development, the state, and democracy by engaging with the ideas, experiences, and peoples who have traditionally been excluded from the canon(s). From a global, relational and decolonial perspective, his work explores the social, political, and economic theories, ideas, networks and plans for the future, which emerge in liberation struggle and in the confrontation between peoples and injustice broadly defined.
