“Samuel Weber teaches literature and critical theory at Northwestern University, whose Paris Program in Critical Theory he also directs. He studied with Paul de Man and Theodor Adorno, taught first in Germany, then in the US, France and the UK. He is currently completing a book-length project tentatively titled Toward A Politics and Poetics of Singularity. A French volume of his essays will appear in November under the title, Inquiétantes singularités.”
