I am a political theorist at Cornell University, where I am the Robert J. Katz Chair of the Department of Government.  I write about democratic theory, American political thought, politics and literature, contemporary continental philosophy, and political aesthetics.  I also teach in these areas.  This webpage offers links to recent publications and talks, courses and teaching resources, as well as updates on my current research.  The links will direct you to some other things in which I am interested or involved. A more detailed description of my research and publications can be found here.
