Mir Ali Hosseini

I am a doctoral candidate and lecturer 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 am the co-editor of The Work of Reading (Palgrave Macmillan, 2021), reviewed in The Year's Work in Critical and Cultural Theory and Textual Practice.

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.
