This afternoon, I gave a lecture at the Shimer Great Books School of North Central College entitled “Plato as Cultural Critic,” in which I shared my experiences and reflections on a faculty seminar I participated in this summer at the Center for Hellenic Studies in Washington, D.C. The lecture transcript is available here.
I recently reviewed Joshua Ramey’s Politics of Divination: Neoliberal Endgame and the Religion of Contingency, a very creative study of neoliberalism.
Inside Higher Ed have published an essay of mine called “Public Engagement is a Two-Way Street.”
I received my copies of Agamben’s Philosophical Lineage, the volume I co-edited with Carlo Salzani, which is currently available for preorder on Amazon. Conceived as more of a reference work than a standard edited volume, it is organized as a series of essays discussing Agamben’s relationship to his many interlocutors.
I have updated the site to include a current research statement. It covers all areas of my research, with an emphasis on how I came to my present project, Neoliberalism’s Demons, and some thoughts on where I will be heading from there.
Welcome to my new professional page! Information about my writing, teaching, and other professional activities can be found via the links in the sidebar. I will be using the blog feature to provide updates on publications and speaking engagements.
For an overview of my recent work, I recommend this interview conducted by Patrick Blanchfield for The Revealer.
