Jeff's Riverside Pic of me2.jpg


I am an assistant professor (teaching stream) with the Department of Philosophy at the University of Toronto. Between the fall of 2021 and the spring of 2023, I was a lecturer at Concordia University in Montreal. I have a PhD from the University of Toronto. I focus on 20th- and 21st-century continental philosophy (especially work by Foucault, Derrida, Catherine Malabou and Judith Butler). My other research interests include depression discourse, feminist philosophy, psychoanalysis, and philosophy of literature. I have studied creative writing for as long as I've studied philosophy. The creative work I do is informed by various streams of Canadian and American avant-garde writing (Kootenay School poetry, language poetry, New Narrative, baroque conceptualism, and Canadian 'pataphysics, to name a few).
