Bio: My research is interested in anatomizing the internal logics of, and exchanges between, three parallel discourses: literature, philosophy, and theology. I am specifically interested in how each of these categories performs truth procedures in order to make ontological claims, with particular attention to concepts of both futurity and evil. Aesthetically, I am interested in experimental modes of all three.
