Witnessness
20th-21st Century
I teach courses in modern and contemporary literature and theory as well as film. Most of my research is on the interpenetrations of literary and philosophical discourse. I've written on Samuel Beckett, Jean-François Lyotard, Jean-Paul Sartre, Marguerite Duras,
and Marcel Duchamp and have translated Lyotard, Michel Deguy, Jacques Derrida, Paul Ricœur, and other French thinkers. My more recent publications are linked to the images of book covers to the left. The latest book, Witnessness: Beckett, Levi, Dante and the Foundations of Ethics, was published by Continuum in October 2010. Before returning to chair Cultural Analysis & Theory I was on research leave to prepare five texts in the Pléiade edition of
Duras' complete works. I served as Program Director at the
Collège International de Philosophie from 2001 to 2007).

In Fall 2013, I taught an undergraduate course on
the French New Wave (CCS 393)
and led a seminar on History of Theory & Criticism (CLT 509) for graduates.
In Spring 2014, I'll return to work on a book begun last summer,
"Common Grounds" (Duras, Foucault, "zones" & "spaces otherwise"), while chairing.
