Alexandre Prince

Thesis supervisor: Krista Lynes

Alexandre Prince holds a BA in History from Université Laval. His scholarly work draws from fashion studies, decolonial theory, and discard studies by looking at non-Western systems of dress in order to reform our relationship to clothing production and consumption. For his thesis, Alexandre looks at strategies of resistance against waste colonialism in East African countries. In addition to that, he is also a member of the ageing + communication + technologies research project, where he sets fashion asides to look at disability studies and inclusive pedagogies.
