David Bernans


Dr. David Bernans spent most of his youth in Ontario but is now a Québec-based writer and translator. He has a Ph.D. in Political Science from York University (1998) and a graduate diploma in Translation from Concordia University (2007).

David’s only nonfiction book, Con U Inc.: Privatization, Marketization and Globalization at Concordia University (and Beyond), was published by the Concordia Student Union in 2001. While he continues to write nonfiction articles and blog posts as well as political satire, most of David’s work these days is of the fictional variety.

David’s first novel, North of 9/11 (Cumulus Press, 2006), made international headlines (with a little help from Concordia University whose security team spied on the author and whose “risk assessment committee” banned a reading planned for the fifth anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks).

David now lives part time on a small farm in Saint-Jean-Port-Joli (where he writes) and part time in Québec City (where he works as a translator).
