convocation

Bob Basil, Professor of Applied Communications at Kwantlen Polytechnic University (shown with superb former student Elaine Chan, above, at Kwantlen’s recent convocation), is President of Basil Communications Inc., a private Vancouver firm, founded in 1996, that provides high-end marketing, strategic planning, and multimedia services for public and private companies in Canada and the United States. The company’s current clients are in the natural-resources sector. “Essentially what I do is stop pages from being blank,” he says.

Basil received his Bachelor of Arts, summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa, at SUNY/Buffalo, and received a graduate degree at Stanford University, where he also taught American Literary and Political Culture Studies (1993-1996). Basil has been a professional writer and editor for 29 years.  He has contributed dozens of articles to books and journals – and has served as Executive Editor for Free Inquiry Magazine (1985-1989) and as the Acquisitions and Senior Trade Books Editor for Prometheus Books, Inc. (1990-1993).  His two essay collections, Not Necessarily the New Age and On the Barricades, received critical praise and wide attention. Basil has been interviewed by more than a hundred radio and television programs, including “Larry King Live,” and has been quoted as a communications and cultural expert in the Washington Post, the Wall Street Journal, the Los Angeles Times, USA Today, and many other newspapers.

In 1997 Basil launched Ellavon: An Ezine of Basic Culture, an internet publication that has won plaudits for its articles, interviews, fiction, columns, and virtual art and photo exhibits. 

A patron of the arts, Basil plays some jazz piano and has become quite the photo enthusiast since moving to North America’s most beautiful city a number of years ago.
