me_sagrada3Greetings! I am an Assistant Professor of Government & Law at Lafayette College. After I received my Ph.D from the University of California, Berkeley, my path to Lafayette took a number of preliminary steps. I was a postdoctoral teaching fellow at Stanford University (2007-09).  And I held visiting professor positions at Northwestern University (2007), Duke University (2009-10), and Williams College (2010-11).

My research and teaching are in the field of political theory. More specifically, my research engages critical theory and its tensions with the liberal tradition. My teaching interests are broad and varied. In recent years, I have taught courses on Capitalism and its Critics, Modern Political Theory, Politics and Aesthetics, Radical Political Economy, Politics and Literature, Democracy/Inclusion/Exclusion, and Critical Theory.

My forthcoming book manuscript (The Powers of Sensibility, Northwestern University Press, Spring 2018) treats the intersection of power, sensibility and radical political agency. Recent articles appear  in Political Theory, Contemporary Political Theory, Polity, European Journal of Political Theory, Philosophy and Social Criticism, Radical Philosophy Review, and Political Studies.
