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 Chinese natural resource extraction in Africa, op-ed journalism and the novel in Spain, 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.
