Profile

I received my undergraduate degree from the University of Southern Maine and completed my Ph.D. at Southern Illinois University, Carbondale, with a dissertation titled "The ‘Perpetual Present’ of Political Modernity: Adorno, Arendt and the Possibility of the New." My areas of interest include American philosophy, continental philosophy, social and political philosophy, and aesthetics.
