New Publications

Two new essays are now available on my publications page: an essay on the concept of a global conscience in the work of Henry David Thoreau, and a discussion of the role of Buddhism in Severo Sarduy’s novel Cobra. Both essays continue my interest in understanding how global influences are handled and understood by modern writers. The Thoreau essay is particularly significant for me as it also gives a teaser for the extension and critique of Michel Foucault’s late work that I discuss at length in my book manuscript, Unbearable Identities.
