Bio/Research

I teach and write about moral and political dilemmas that are messy, frustrating, often irresolvable, and therefore fascinating. My philosophy courses focus on contemporary political theory and global issues, and on themes in the Continental tradition like intersubjectivity, community, violence, love, ethical ambiguity. In Peace Studies I teach courses on war, ethnopolitical conflict and peacebuilding.

I've written two books, Speaking of Freedom: Philosophy, Politics and the Struggle for Liberation (Stanford, 2007), and The Violence of Victimhood (Penn State, 2012) and have published essays on a range of social and political issues.

I grew up on a farm in southern Ontario where cultivating the life of the mind was the only way to pass the time on a humid August day of peach packing.
