Mir Ali Hosseini

I am a doctoral candidate at the University of Regensburg, Germany, where I study mid-twentieth-century intellectual and cultural history.

My doctoral project, which is supervised by Benjamin Kohlmann and funded by the Studienstiftung des deutschen Volkes, explores the affective and ideological complexities of Cold War liberal thought.

Prior to my current 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 co-edited The Work of Reading (Palgrave Macmillan, 2021), reviewed in The Year's Work in Critical and Cultural Theory and Textual Practice.

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

In my teaching, I strive to create an inclusive and student-centered environment where everyone can explore new ideas, develop critical thinking skills, and engage in a meaningful exchange with others.

I have no fixed office hours, but if you like to share your thoughts, ideas, or concerns, don't hesitate to get in touch. I am always available for a chat.
