Political Thought

A number of scholars in the department explore how the political is thought about today. These include philosophical critiques of politics under the rubrics of the apolitical and the impolitical; the intersection of the biological with the political in biopolitcs; and Marxian-influenced readings of the contemporary moment. Intellectual history is also a strong suit, especially concerning political and social movements of the 20th century, grouped around the rubric of totalitiarianism; comparative fascisms across the cultures that comprise Romance Studies; and colonial and postcolonial histories.
