You’ll receive Illuminations, a newsletter with notes from the past and reflections on the present, containing archival finds, translations, and reading recommendations on everything from laughter and loneliness to ideology and terror. Once a month I host a virtual happy hour.

About me:

I’m the author of Hannah Arendt, a biography forthcoming from Reaktion Books (2021), and Hannah Arendt’s Poems, forthcoming from Liveright (2022). I’m currently writing a book about loneliness for Yale University Press. I’m the assistant director of the Hannah Arendt Center for Politics and Humanities, visiting assistant professor of Politics at Bard College, and associate faculty at the Brooklyn Institute for Social Research and the University of the Underground.
