I’m the Anne F. Rothenberg Professor of the Humanities. I work on questions of race and representation.

I work on the politics of affiliation, the literature and culture of groups who are minorities, the ethics of refugees. The questions of dignity in art, culture and politics are very important for me. My work as a whole is aimed towards understanding the present moment because the past refuses to die and the future refuses to wait to be born.
