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. As of September 2016, I am Henry R. Luce Initiative on Religion in International Affairs Post-Doctoral Fellow at the Center for Religion and Media at NYU. Starting in September 2017, I’ll be teaching as a member of the Faculty of the Brooklyn Institute for Social Research, Philadelphia.

Alongside more academic research, I do journalistic and critical writing about US culture, violence, and politics. I am represented by Markus Hoffmann of RHA Literary.

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 big Modest Mouse fan.
