A former production laminator, Dexter has spent the last decade between labor, teaching, and research positions in Latin America and California. Completing his PhD at the University of California, Berkeley, Dexter focuses his scholarship on literary and cultural studies of colonial Latin America. To the dismay of his colleagues, he also writes about surfing as mediated discourse and its relationship to colonialism and globalization. He is currently working on «The Critical Surf Studies Reader» (anticipated 2016) with Alexander Eastman, an edited volume featuring essays by nearly two dozen scholars examining surfing as social practice.
