I am an American academic and writer with an interest in politics, social justice and the public sphere, and with bylines in Salon, Counterpunch, Alternet, The Inquisitr, and other publications.

Formerly a professor at University of Pennsylvania, Haverford College and The Curtis Institute of Music, I also teach and write on academic subjects, and am editor and co-author of The Force of the Virtual: Deleuze, Science and Philosophy (University of Minnesota Press). As 2009 Andrew W. Mellon Regional Fellow in the Humanities at University of Pennsylvania, I investigated issues at the intersection of philosophy and science.

Now, recently transplanted to Czech Republic, I write on current events with global reach and create theater with Zuzana Smolová.

Languages: English (native), French (fluent), Spanish, Italian & Czech (conversant)
