Samuel Burgum

I am a third-year PhD candidate at the University of Warwick, UK.

As part of my doctoral research, I have been conducting research with Occupy (in) London since 2012, with the intention of raising questions on the foreclosure of possibility that may prevent effective resistance and social change in contemporary (post-crash) society.

I am particularly interested in the work of Judith Butler, Jodi Dean, Michel Focuault, Henri Lefebvre, Jacques Ranciere, Peter Sloterdijk and Slavoj Zizek, as well as the debates surrounding post-politics, interpassivity, urban space, identity, cynicism, conspiracy and ressentiment.

I am also a member of the Authority and Political Technologies research network

Supervisors: Prof. Nicholas Gane & Dr. Claire Blencowe
