Teaching Interests: Introduction to Philosophy, Philosophy of Art, and 19th Century Philosophy

Research Interests: Most of my research examines topics in art, popular culture, religion, and politics. My current interests involve the political thought of Hannah Arendt and I serve as the Managing Editor of Arendt Studies. Prior to Georgia Southern University, I taught courses in continental philosophy, politics, and art at the University of Wisconsin, Stevens Point.
