Visiting Assistant Professor
Comparative Literature, IUB
After growing up in New York, studying in Chicagoland and then back in NYC, and teaching in Maryland, Tel Aviv, and Berlin, Michael Weinman came to IU in August 2020, as Visiting Assistant Professor in Comparative Literature. He is a "stridently undisciplinary" academic who mostly does research in the history of political thought and the social sciences, with a related interest in the intersection of philosophy and literature. When not waging war on the evils of presentism, he enjoys consuming aesthetically pleasing things (in moderation) and being outdoors as much as possible. He teaches a section of LAMP-L 216 called "Globalization: Money; Things; People" for the LAMP honors certificate.
