Dr. Holloway’s primary interests lie in social and political philosophy and aesthetics in contemporary European thought, and in the history of philosophy more broadly. Before coming to Farmingdale in 2017, he taught at Vassar College, New York University, the Pratt Institute, and SUNY-Stony Brook, and was a Fulbright Scholar at the Universität Freiburg in Germany. Holloway has studied and researched extensively in Germany, France, and Italy through grants from the Andrew Mellon Foundation, the DAAD, the Fulbright Commission, and the Max Kade Institute. He is co-translator of two books of French philosophy—What’s These Worlds Coming To? by Jean-Luc Nancy and Aurélien Barrau (Fordham, 2014) and The Possibility of a World by Jean-Luc Nancy (Fordham, 2017)—and co-author of Occupying Wall Street: The Inside Story of an Action that Changed America (OR Books, 2011). Other recent work can be found in Epoché, Symposium, Parrhesia, Guernica, The Nation, and elsewhere. You can read more about his work here.
