Allen Haaheim teaches ENGL 150 (Academic Research and Writing), and has taught ENGL 110 (Academic Reading, Writing, and Thinking) and ENGL 120 (Introduction to Literary Genres) at Corpus Christi College. He specializes in comparative literature and early medieval Chinese literature, and he is competent in mid-Victorian poetics and as a generalist in the literary traditions of China and the West.
His research agenda aims to mine the good in world traditions through comparative studies. The transcultural potential of the radically innovative prosodic theories of Gerard Manley Hopkins (1844–1889) and Shen Yue (441–513), as rooted in their particular traditional religious worldviews and ontologies of perception, is the subject of his (undefended) doctoral dissertation at the Centre for Comparative Literature at the University of Toronto. Related interests include intercultural and intercivilizational theory, philological exegesis and translation, continental thought and criticism, folklore and folk music, and relations between aesthetics and ethics.
He holds an MA in Classical Chinese Poetry and a BA in English, both from the University of Victoria. In addition to Corpus Christi College, he has taught courses at Simon Fraser University (World Literature), Quest University Canada (Mandarin Chinese), and the University of Victoria (Comparative Literary Theory). He also taught for many years as a TA at the University of Toronto, UBC, and the University of Victoria; several years of ESL in Japan, Taiwan, China, and Canada; and four years of high school.
His most recent publication is “The Poetry of Zuo Binglong (1850–1924)” (with Lap Lam), in Xinzhou yayuan (Singapore Elegantiae Florilegium) 11 (April 2021) 167–180.
Angus received his BA in Psychology and MEd in Educational Psychology at SFU, where he researched on the development of academic writing in ESL and EAP students while teaching courses in Psychology and Educational Psychology. He currently teaches Academic Writing and Psychology courses in Corpus Christi and Alexander College.
Angus has also taught ESL, IELTs, TOEFL, SAT to international students in various colleges and test preparation centres. Angus completed his TESOL in Douglas College, and is currently completing his Provincial Instructor’s Diploma at VCC to continue crafting his instructional techniques in the classroom and online.
Born in Hong Kong, raised in the UK, and living in Vancouver, Angus shares the struggles and challenges that current international students must overcome in order survive and succeed in Canadian post secondary schools.
Angus also enjoys running, swimming, and spending time with his growing family.

Germain McKenzie is a Peruvian-Canadian theologian and sociologist who earned a Ph.D. in Religion and Culture from the Catholic University of America (Washington, D.C.). His academic interests focus on the intersection of Catholic theology and sociology in both a theoretical and applied manner. In regard to the former, he is currently studying the pre-conditions for a dialogue between theology and the social sciences that would respect the nature and method of each of those disciplines. As per the latter, Dr. McKenzie is studying new evangelization initiatives in Canada through the use of quantitative and qualitative sociological approaches, in the light of secular and post-secular studies.
Dr. McKenzie interests include issues related to moral theology, in particular those belonging to Catholic social ethics as applied to refugees and immigrants into Canada. He has been an activist for Catholic-inspired social change in Latin America and has served poor communities in the shanty towns of Lima, his city of birth, for more than 10 years. In this connection he has published peer-reviewed articles on social ethics: “Medellin: 30 Years After” and “John Paul II’s Reconciliation Proposal for Latin America.”
Dr. McKenzie is also interested in the social dynamics of religious minorities, having done studies on different Buddhist lineages in Peru, and also in Catholic revivalist groups. He is keen of exploring the origin, development and integration into the life of the Church of lay associations and ecclesial movements, as well as in the evolution of the theological understanding of the relationships between the charismatic and institutional dimension of the Church.
He has worked at various Peruvian universities and has also taught at Niagara University, in Lewiston, New York. While conducting his doctoral studies, Dr. McKenzie was awarded by his alma mater with the Hubbard Dissertation Fellowship, and by the Canadian Consortium for the Study of Religion with the Travel Scholarship for Doctoral Students. He also worked as Research Assistant for the Hispanic Ministry Organizational Culture Project, carried out by the Institute for Public Research and Catholic Studies (Washington, D.C.)
He currently lives in Surrey with his wife, Giuliana.

Dr. Hamid Maghzian is an engineering Ph.D. graduate of the University of British Columbia with a diverse educational background in Civil/Structural engineering and Mechanical engineering.
During the past 8 years, Dr. Maghzian has taught courses in Mathematics, Physics, Engineering and Computer programming. His philosophy in teaching involves engaging students in class and providing ample practical examples as well as problem sets to demonstrate and achieve the learning objectives of the course.
In their future careers, the students would be facing new challenges, which they have not seen in any course before. Dr. Maghzian helps instill a problem solving skill in students so they can think critically when the time comes. Presenting thought-provoking problems in class and allowing students to work on them in groups has been an efficient technique to that end.
“One on one interaction with the students has been a central point of my teaching practice. Each student is unique, hence has a unique way of understanding. It is important for me to recognize their differences and be the guide along their unique journey towards understanding.”
