Paul Ugor is currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of English at Illinois State University, Normal, Illinois. His research interests are in Anglophone World Literatures, Postcolonial Studies, Cultural Theory, New Media Cultures in the Global South; and Modern African Literatures and Cultures. Some of his publications include Nollywood: Popular Video Films and New Narratives of Youth Struggles in Nigeria (Sept. 2016); African Youth Cultures in the Age of Globalization: Challenges, Agency and Resistance (Ashgate, August 2015); Contemporary Youth Cultures in Africa, Special Issue of Postcolonial Text. Vol. 8, No 3&4, 2013; and Youth, Cultural Politics and New Social Spaces in an Era of Globalization, Special Issue of Review of Education, Pedagogy and Cultural Studies 31:4, (September 2009). Dr Ugor’s courses are very much concerned with the multiple ways in which postcolonial literatures can create intercultural dialogue in high school classrooms. His research and teaching interests in general are concerned with new social processes—in global politics, economy, information and communication technologies, cultural/textual representations, and everyday life—and the new social responses which these social changes elicit, especially from marginal groups like youth and women in postcolonial settings
