Ki Wight

Ki Wight, MFA is a critical media studies scholar whose work looks at the relationship between media education, media culture and systems of oppression. She is a full-time lecturer at Capilano University in the Communication Studies, Women’s and Gender Studies, Liberal Studies and Motion Picture Arts programs, and a  PhD candidate in the Equity Studies in Education program at Simon Fraser University. Before teaching at Capilano University, Ki was a film and television producer and executive for Canadian and international productions. Her work engages critical and decolonial pedagogy, critical race and critical whiteness studies, feminist and queer theory, and cultural studies.


Having lost her office space, Wight looks back at it using diffractive methodology to show how work spaces can function as sites of self-expression, feminist pedagogy and resistance in heteropatriarchal, neoliberal institutions.
