Jeremy Desjarlais is a literary scholar with Undergraduate and Graduate degrees in English and Philosophy and is of mixed Cree (Cowessess First Nation), Saulteaux, French, and Ukrainian ancestry. Having finished his Master’s work in 2016, he worked as a Sessional Lecturer from the Fall of 2016 until the close of 2018, before accepting a position as a Faculty Lecturer at the outset of 2019. Future plans entail beginning a PhD. in English in the Fall of 2020, with a focus on long poetry’s capacity to deal with the larger considerations of ontology, reconciliation, and linguistic impulse in writing.
