Alok Amatya, PhD

Consultant

Multilingual Experience

I went to Reed College in Portland, Oregon - of Portlandia fame - to get my BA in English. Having worked for several years at the Computer User Services there, I am an aficionado of The IT Crowd. I received my MA and PhD from the University of Miami in Coral Gables, Florida, where I studied global, ethnic and environmental literatures. My current research explores how travel narratives in prose and film are connected to stories of resistance from environmentalist and indigenous activists.
