B.A. in Comparative Literature, Emory University, 2014 

Research interests: Animal Studies, German Idealism, Post-structuralism, English, French and German literature

Dissertation in progress: the concept of doxa in the work of Gilles Deleuze. This dissertation holds that doxa, or opinion, is the key concept in the Deleuzian corpus from beginning to end. It explores the aristocratic bent of an anti-doxa stance in relation to the democracy-to-come of deconstruction, asking after the political future of post-structuralism in this argumentative context, supplemented with readings from American 20th-Century Literature

Languages: English, French, German, Attic Greek
