Faculty

Note: This is a mere sampling of our over 180 supervisors. Don't be alarmed if you don't see a supervisor you'd want on your committee listed here. That doesn't mean they can't be appointed to Interdisciplinary Studies. Supervisors are appointed on an as–needed basis. In other words, when we have successful applicants who (for example) need someone from Film, Law and Gender and Women's Studies — we will work to make it happen. So sure — have a look below at some of our faculty but remember we tap into every nook and cranny at York and nearly every full-time faculty member can be a part of our cool program. It's up to you to find the three that fit best for your intended area of inquiry. And when you come to sit with the director, we'll work on generating a list of prospective supervisors that you will then contact.

Research Interests
I am completing a book on the significance of the work of the German-American philosopher and political theorist, Hannah Arendt, for the social sciences. This is a neglected area within the recent slew of studies of Arendt’s work, which have concentrated mostly on her political writings. I argue that Arendt’s (often bitter) objections to the social sciences can be interpreted constructively as a way to renew their integrity and significance. This book complements my ongoing interest in classical and contemporary sociological theory and the philosophy of the social sciences.
