Christopher Jenks has worked in six distinct geopolitical regions: the United States, England, South Korea, Hong Kong, Denmark, and now the Netherlands. He specializes in the study of language in society and is particularly interested in the political and cultural implications of the global spread of English.  His research interests include online communication, intercultural encounters, political discourse, and identity construction. Christopher is particularly interested in how spoken and written discourse performs a range of communicative actions (e.g., trolling and arguing) and indexes a number of social phenomena (e.g., nationalism and race). He is the author and editor of nine books and has three more coming in 2023 and 2024.
