I’m currently writing on the climate crisis and violence under the working title Futures of Denial: Climate Change & Melancholia, which will release in 2023 with Verso Books.
My latest book Against: What Does the White Evangelical Want? explores trends and underlying desires of the most quintessentially American faith—a theological improvisation around whiteness. In five chapters—Against Future, Against Knowledge, Against Sexuality, Against Reality, and Against Society—the book conjoins history and psychoanalysis to explore a dangerous religio-political coalition. There is also a ten-part podcast of Against.
I’m the author of The Cynic & the Fool: The Unconscious in Theology & Politics and God Is Unconscious: Psychoanalysis & Theology. I’m interested in the intersections of continental philosophy, theology, psychoanalysis, critical theory, and politics. Beyond my research, I am an Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Baltimore City Community College, and I am a faculty member with the Department of Religious Studies at Michigan State University.
