I am an unconditional accelerationist, part-time political analyst, currently a PhD student at the Cambridge Department of Politics and International Studies, and until September 2017 visiting researcher at the Theory of Politics chair at Humboldt University. My PhD thesis is a prehistory of accelerationism in the early 20th century, focusing mainly on the development of European Marxism and futurism from 1890 to 1940. I’m also interested in continental philosophy more generally and modern East Asian politics and political thought. At Cambridge I teach political theory and the history of political thought, 1700 to present. My prior academic background is in theology, political science, and history.
