I’ve got a PhD in Comparative Literature from Emory University, and also completed four years of coursework in psychoanalytic theory and clinical practice at the Emory Psychoanalytic Institute. In September 2016, I was Henry R. Luce Initiative on Religion in International Affairs Post-Doctoral Fellow at the Center for Religion and Media at NYU. I regularly teach as a member of the Faculty of the Brooklyn Institute for Social Research, Philadelphia.
I’m on Twitter as @patblanchfield.
I grew up in New York City, have lived in a bunch of places since then, and now live in the Philadelphia area. As the blog header may have suggested, I’m a Modest Mouse fan.
