Editor for Critical Theory, Politics, Current Events

“I am acquiring books that break new ground in politics, critical theory, and cultural studies as well as those that offer original viewpoints on current events. I have recently signed authors writing about Native Americans and the Constitution, China’s sovereign wealth funds, and the virtues of being wrong. In all fields, I look for projects tackling political and philosophical questions with an international perspective. In critical theory, I seek works both new and old that have yet to appear in English.

Before joining HUP as an editor, I completed a Ph.D. in Comparative Literature with a secondary field in Critical Media Practice.”

We asked him about his impassioned new book: why he wrote it, how it’s optimistic, and what we need to do to continue making progress on creating an equitable world.
