AU Grad publishes on Foucault

A graduate of Ashland's Philosophy program has recently published a major article in philosophy. R.d. Crano, who graduated from Ashland in 2003, has published in the 2011 edition of Foucault Studies, volume 11, February, 2011. The article, 'Genealogy, Virtuality, War,' investigates the French philosopher's lecture course on Thomas Hobbes. Crano is a Ph.D. candidate in Ohio State's department of Comparative Studies, where he is completing his dissertation on media, power, and subjectivity after the neoliberal and financial revolutions of global capital in the late-1970s. Previously, he has published essays on European cinema, dramatic theory, and the philosophical thought of Michel Foucault, Giorgio Agamben, Guy Debord, and Gilles Deleuze. Before enrolling in graduate school, Crano studied philosophy at AU, which he credits for shaping his persistent intellectual curiosity. "I have yet to find a successful antidote for the fever that the study of philosophy has given me."
