About

My name is Patrick Blanchfield and I’m a freelance writer. 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.

In addition to my academic research, I do journalistic and critical writing about US culture, violence, and politics. You can read my CV here.

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.
