Michael Krimper earned his PhD in Comparative Literature at NYU in 2018. He specializes in 20th-21st century Francophone, Anglophone, and comparative literature, with a particular emphasis on the intersection of aesthetics and politics in transatlantic modernisms. He is currently finishing a book that examines how work becomes a problem across a wide array of literature, visual art, and philosophy throughout the twentieth century. His articles, reviews, and translations have been published or are forthcoming in New Literary History, SubStance, The Los Angeles Review of Books, and the Journal of Italian Philosophy, among other venues. His research has been supported by a Mellon Dissertation Fellowship in the Humanities, a Georges Lurcy Fellowship, and a Remarque Institute Doctoral Fellowship at the École normale supérieure in Paris. At NYU, he has also taught in the Department of French and Liberal Studies, and not so long ago worked as a music journalist in California.
