A former production laminator, Dexter has spent his professional life between labor, teaching, and research positions in Latin America and California. A PhD Candidate at the University of California, Berkeley, Dexter's scholarship on colonial Latin America has been published in three languages throughout the Iberian world and the United States. In addition to his literary and cultural scholarship, 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» (under contract with Duke University Press) with Alexander Eastman, an edited collection of scholarly interventions examining surfing as social practice.
