Jason Mohaghegh is as Associate Professor of Comparative Literature at Babson College. His focus is upon tracking emergent currents of thought in the Middle East and the West, with particular attention given to exploring concepts of chaos, violence, illusion, silence, sectarianism, mania, disappearance, and apocalyptic writing. His book Night: A Philosophy of the After Dark is due out from Zero Books in December.
This week’s podcast is available for everyone but, starting soon we’ll be returning to our usual approach of two podcasts a week, one for everyone and one for our patrons. We’ll be phasing out Derick Varn’s Symptomatic Redness and introducing two new podcasts. The first one, with Derick Varn and myself, will be called Pop the Left. Long-time listeners to this podcast may remember an earlier incarnation of this one. The idea will be to tackle longstanding problems and issues in left or, more specifically, socialist politics. The second podcast that we’ll be introducing will be on the topic of sectarian splits on the Marxist left and might be entitled splitting.
