Mir Ali Hosseini

I am a doctoral candidate in British and North American Literary and Cultural Studies at the University of Freiburg, Germany, where I study the essay form and mid-twentieth-century intellectual and cultural history. My doctoral research project is supervised by Benjamin Kohlmann and funded by the Studienstiftung des deutschen Volkes. Prior to my doctoral studies, I completed an MA in Philosophy at KU Leuven, Belgium (2018), and an MA in English Literatures and Literary Theory at the University of Freiburg (2017).

Together with Derek Attridge and Anirudh Sridhar, I have co-edited The Work of Reading: Literary Criticism in the 21st Century (Palgrave Macmillan, 2021).

I also write less academically coded theoretical, cultural, and political criticism. My writing has appeared in The Philosophical Salon, New Politics, 3 Quarks Daily, CounterPunch, and more.
