Sils MariaI am an Associate Professor in the Philosophy Department at University of California, Berkeley, and affiliated with the Program in Critical Theory.  I serve as Section Editor in Continental Philosophy for Philosophy Compass.

My research interests are in 19th and 20th century European philosophy, primarily Hegel & German Idealism, and additionally Nietzsche, Critical Theory, and feminist philosophy.  My teaching interests also include “Existentialism in Literature and Film”.  I am generally interested in literature and film.

Here is a short interview for the APA blog, and a longer interview for 3AM magazine.  I talked to Karen Ng about Ansteckung/contagion for the video project 5 Minuten Hegel.
