Christopher Mead

Associate Professor (Lecturer)

I grew up in the mountains of British Columbia and then attended college on the Canadian prairies, at the University of Manitoba. After completing my MA (also at Manitoba), I lived in London and Montreal for several years before moving to the US to begin graduate school at the University of California, Berkeley, where I received my Ph.D. in early modern English literature in 2015. In Honors, I teach courses in Intellectual Traditions and writing, and I am currently serving as Faculty Director of the Honors Integrated Minor in Human Rights and Resources, which is currently running tracks in Utah and Mexico. For me, the greatest pleasures of Honors are found in its intellectual diversity and interdisciplinarity. I welcome conversations with students about topics relating to the HRR minor, Mexico, my research interests (which historically have focused on the relationship between technology and religion), and whatever happens to be on your mind.
