Andrew Culp (PhD Ohio State, 2013) teaches Media History and Theory in the MA Program in Aesthetics and Politics and the School of Critical Studies at CalArts. His published work on media, film, politics, and philosophy has appeared in Radical Philosophy, parallax, angelaki, and boundary 2 online. He also serves on the Governing Board of the Cultural Studies Association.
His interest in media stems from the after-lives of technologies born out of the anti-globalization movement of the 1990s. In his first book, Dark Deleuze (University of Minnesota Press, 2016), he proposes a revolutionary new image of Gilles Deleuze’s thought suited to our 24/7 always-on media environment, and it has been translated into numerous languages including Spanish, Japanese, and German.
Current work includes a monograph on technologies of anonymous resistance titled Persona Obscura (under contract with University of Minnesota Press), articles on the influence of the digital/networks on radical politics, and explorations of contemporary theories of pessimism.
