new and forthcoming publications

I’m pleased to announce that Theory & Event has published my essay “Unexpected Paths: On Political Theory and History,” a short piece that reflects on the blind spots produced by our habitual bisection of the field of political theory into “history of political thought” and “normative political philosophy,” and also pays tribute to Sheldon Wolin.  It’s part of a symposium on history and political theory that includes contributions by Keally McBride, Jeanne Morefield, Sam Moyn, and Chip Turner.

Forthcoming: a critical exchange with Patricia Owens on her outstanding book Economy of Force in the journal Security Dialogue, and, further down the pipeline, comments on Rainer Forst’s Normativität und Macht and Wendy Brown’s Undoing the Demos.
