Valérie Vézina, Kwantlen Polytechnic University
Valérie Vézina (PhD, Université du Québec à Montréal) is a faculty member in the department of political science at Kwantlen Polytechnic University (KPU), since September 2018. Her research focuses on the intersection between nationalism studies and island studies. She specialises in comparative studies. Her book “Une île, une nation?” [One island, one nation?] was a finalist for the prix francophone (the Francophone prize) of the Canadian political science association in 2020.
Dr. Valérie Vézina became a proponent of Open education and open sources since her arrival at KPU. She teaches ideologies and politics on a regular basis and wanted to develop an open source for students; this is how this project was first born.
When not teaching and researching, Dr. Vézina enjoys trail running, yoga and swimming.
