Biography

Kazarian's research is focused on 20th and 21st Century French and Francophone Philosophy, especially the work of Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari, Michel Foucault, and François Laruelle, and the relationship between philosophy and psychoanalysis during that period. He also interested in modern European thought, its relation to the history of European colonization, and the anti- and post-colonial movements that arose in response to it. Thematically, his work centers in social, political and ethical philosophy, with an emphasis on philosophies of liberation and theories of the constitution of subjectivity. And he is also interested in aesthetics and philosophical engagements with art, music and literature. He is the co-editor of Gilles Deleuze and Metaphysics (Lexington Books) and is currently co-translating François Laruelle's Mystique non-philosophique à l'usage des contemporains (Palgrave MacMillan, under contract). More information on his scholarship can be found here. He also coordinates the Theorizing at Rowan lecture series.
