My research interests lie at the interface between ethics and cultural discourse. I am currently preparing a draft for my book, "Pedagogy of the Agon: Rearticulating Critical Writing" which extends Chantal Mouffe's "return of the political" and Mark Taylor's "return of the theological." In order to move privatized "rhetoric" into a more plural and public/agonistic realm, the "rhetorical," I propose that critical theory and pedagogy emerge within an "inventional agonistic" space.
