New essay out: “Crisis, Critique, and Abolition”

Excited that this is out in print, an essay on the relationship between critique (as a practice of empirically engaged analysis) and abolitionist politics, as part of A Time For Critique (Columbia Press, 2019). The essay came out of a really amazing study group I was in a few years ago, and it captures a lot of how I think about our present moment in relation to the long history of “crisis” that is often forgotten when every day feels like a new disaster is unfolding. I’m really flattered to be alongside a lot of incredible thinkers here, and humbled to have my thoughts included.
