About

I am a writer, translator, and critic. I also work as a lecturer in philosophy and intellectual history at the Norwegian liberal arts college Kulturakademiet. In addition to my books Frykt og avsky i demokratiet (2020) and Krystallpalasset (2024, forthcoming) I have written extensively for Norwegian magazines and newspapers on literature, culture, art, philosophy, and political and ideological currents. Since 2016 I have also worked as an editor at the independent publisher House of Foundation (H//O//F), where I’m co-editing a series of contemporary philosophy in translation.
