About The Blog:

I haven’t posted to the blog section of this site in years now, but if you’re looking for representative pieces from it that have also proven popular online, I suggest this (about writing on gun violence in general), this (on Sandy Hook and race and class), and this (on mass shootings and misogyny).

About Me:

I freelance write and teach for a living full-time. In terms of my credentials, 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. I regularly teach as a member of the Faculty of the Brooklyn Institute for Social Research, Philadelphia. You can read my full CV here. I grew up in New York City, have lived in a bunch of places since then, and now live outside Philadelphia. You can email me at pat (dot) blanchfield @ gmail (dot) com. I’m on Twitter as @patblanchfield. I stream things on Twitch at https://www.twitch.tv/carteblanchfield

Contact Info:

I’m always happy for solicitations from editors; please feel free to email me or drop me a message on Twitter. I also enjoy doing talks, podcasts, media appearances, etcetera, for all kinds of audiences, popular and academic; do reach out if you’re interested.

Support My Work:

I am deeply appreciative of the reader support (in many senses) without which my work would not be possible (again in many senses). If you like my work, and want to help me keep it up materially, please consider contributing to my Patreon.
