Alexander Hemingway

Alex is an education geek. He’s currently working towards his PhD in Political Science at UBC, and holds master’s degrees in Global Politics and Social Policy from the London School of Economics. He also earned a BA in Psychology from SFU, with a research focus on the psychology of morality. From the other side of the classroom, he’s a teaching assistant at UBC and has taught at a progressive high school in Vancouver.

What’s the point in all of that studying and research, though, if you don’t try to make some change in the world? That’s why Alex has been involved in a range of social justice projects, including the fossil fuel divestment campaign at UBC. When he’s not doing that sort of thing, he likes to read, listen to music, and sometimes pine for Prague (where he spent a semester studying).
