Wendy Brown is Professor of Political Science at Berkeley, University of California. Professor Brown’s fields of interest include the history of political theory, nineteenth and twentieth century Continental theory, critical theory, and cultural theory (including feminist theory, critical race theory, and postcolonial theory). She is best known for intertwining the insights of Marx, Nietzsche, Weber, Freud, Frankfurt School theorists, Foucault, and contemporary Continental philosophers to critically interrogate formations of power, political identity, citizenship, and political subjectivity in contemporary liberal democracies. Brown’s current research concerns the relation of religion, secularism and capital in Marx’s work along with the novel predicaments of democratic citizenship in contemporary neoliberal governmentality.
