Political Theory

Most of my research currently centers on the connections between history/historiography and politics, with a specific focus on genealogy and rhetorical appeals to history as a moral arbiter

I am currently developing a secondary project on aesthetics and politics that considers the uses of “political kitsch” in the discourse and iconography of power and government

With Kevin Lujan Lee, a Ph.D candidate at MIT’s Department of Urban Studies and Planning, I am also engaged in an ongoing project on the contemporary indigenous political thought of Oceania/Pacific Islands
