Welcome! I am a Postdoctoral College Fellow at the Committee on Degrees in Social Studies at Harvard University. I received my Ph.D. in Political Science from Yale University in May 2019, where I specialized in political theory. My research focuses broadly on political criticism and social movements from the 18th-century to the present. I teach classes in American political thought, the history of political thought, and contemporary political and social theory.
During the 2019-2020 academic year, I am working on a book project, Romantics as Critics: Redefining the Practice of Social Criticism, which examines how the romantic political tradition altered conventional approaches to practicing criticism and explores the implications of their changes for critics today. The book draws on archival research and work from a number of disciplines, including philosophy, anthropology, political science, social theory, and intellectual history, in addition to well-known writings in modern political thought. This year at Harvard, I will be teaching Introduction to Social Studies, a year-long course for potential Social Studies majors, and a junior tutorial on American Social Movements.
