William Callison

I'm a political theorist with research interests in the history of political and economic thought, contemporary democratic and critical theory, and cultural studies. My work explores dilemmas of democratic crisis, neoliberal capitalism, political subjectivity, climate change denial, and far-right nationalist movements in Europe and the Americas.


Currently I'm a Member in the School of Social Science at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton. From 2019 to 2021 I was a Visiting Assistant Professor of Government and Law at Lafayette College, prior to which I received a Ph.D. in Political Science from the University of California, Berkeley.

I'm co-editor of Mutant Neoliberalism: Market Rule and Political Rupture (Fordham University Press) and Europe at a Crossroads” (Near Futures Online), and special issue editor of "Rethinking Sovereignty and Capitalism" (Qui Parle).
