Hello! You can find here information about my current work and research interests. I’m currently Assistant Professor of Political Studies at Bard College, where I teach and write on the history of political thought.

My research investigates the intersections of democracy and political violence, with an area focus on modern French political thought and intellectual history. In my current book project, The Virtues of Violence, I examine the recurring role of regenerative violence in the struggle for democracy in France.

In addition to the canon of modern political theory, I enjoy teaching social theory, major figures in feminist political thought, historiography, and on various topics in modern European political thought and development.

You can also find me elsewhere on the web. Current papers I am presenting at workshops and conferences can be found on my academia page. My book collection, small but growing, is at librarything.
