M. Eraldo Souza Dos Santos
À propos de moi
I am a philosopher and historian of political thought. My research interests include the history of political concepts, the politics of social movements, and Black internationalism (South and Southeast Asia).
In my current book project, I offer the first global history of civil disobedience by focusing on the historical process by which it has become a key political concept in the United States.
I have been the recipient of grants and fellowships from the Académie française, the Maison française d'Oxford, the Munich Centre for Global History, the Friedrich Nietzsche College of the Klassik Stiftung Weimar, the French-Dutch Network for Higher Education and Research, the Leuven Institute for Advanced Studies, and the Coordination for the Improvement of Higher Education Personnel, among others.
I am currently a Ph.D. candidate in Philosophy at Panthéon-Sorbonne University. I have received my B.A. in Philosophy from the University of São Paulo and pursued an M.A. in French and German Philosophy at the Charles University in Prague, the University of Wuppertal, and the University of Bonn as an Erasmus Mundus Scholar.
I have taught history, philosophy, and political science at the Sorbonne, Sciences Po Paris, Bielefeld University, the Leibniz University Hannover, the University of Potsdam, and the Charles University in Prague. In 2022, I was an Erasmus+ visiting lecturer at the University of Southampton and at the University of Vienna, where I also served as a guest lecturer at the University of Chicago's Vienna Human Rights program.
My public writing has appeared in The Diplomat, The Washington Post, World Politics Review, and elsewhere.
I am also a 2022 Los Angeles Review of Books Publishing Fellow.
