Writing

I write about issues at the intersections of philosophy, history, art and politics, including currently a book about the 17th century Ethiopian philosopher Zera Yacob, and the question of whether or not he existed. My essays and critical reviews have appeared in the Times Literary SupplementNew Humanist, Philosophy, the Oxonian Review and more.

See below for a list of selected published work and forthcoming projects.​
