NOTE: As of August, 2020, my primary outlet for new writing is my Substack newsletter, “The Hinternet”. Please subscribe to it!

I am professor of philosophy in the Department of History and Philosophy of Science at the University of Paris. In 2019-20, I was the John and Constance Birkelund Fellow at the Cullman Center for Scholars and Writers of the New York Public Library.

My next more or less scholarly book, The Internet Is Not What You Think It Is, will appear in 2021 from Princeton University Press.

I am an author. I write literary non-fiction, poetry, and fiction, and I also translate poetry. I am currently translating the Olonkho, a Siberian oral epic, for University of California Press. I am co-author, with D. Graham Burnett and Catherine Hansen, of a work of historiographical metafiction, appearing in 2021 from Strange Attractor Press. I have also written a novel, entitled Moses and Wilhelmina, which may eventually see the light of day.
