I work broadly in Continental philosophy, with a focus on German Idealism (esp. Hegel) and recent French Philosophy (esp. Derrida, Badiou, and Deleuze), as well as in political theory, with an emphasis on the organic intellectuals of post-war Black Liberation movements in America (esp. Martin Luther King, The Black Panthers, Malcolm X, and Hip Hop culture). Current projects include a Hegelian explication and defence of the aesthetic and cultural practices surrounding the band Phish, and a monograph on the political theory and practice of Huey P. Newton and the Black Panther Party.
