Garnet Kindervater

Lecturer

My primary research and teaching interests rest where contemporary politics, human geography, and critical philosophy meet. I navigate this interdisciplinary space by drawing upon writing from contemporary political theory, security studies, materialism, political economy, and cultural studies. My current book manuscript, Catastrophe and Human Survival: A Theory of Catastrophism, considers the presumption of human precariousness when making reference to future catastrophesI have several articles in various stages of completion, ranging in topic from catastrophe and political rationality; Enlightenment humanism, progress, and climate change; biopolitics and capital; and ontology and vitalist materialism in political thought.
