Noreen Khawaja

Religious Studies

Noreen Khawaja specializes in 19th and 20th century European intellectual history, and particularly on the shifting status of religious ideas in late modern Western philosophy and culture. Her research examines the collapse of metaphysics both historically and philosophically. She looks at this issue in relation to secularity, the retrieval of theological traditions, and the rise of critical discourses on religion. She is currently working on a book that studies how Christian models of conversion formed the basis of the ideal of personal authenticity in existential thought, focusing on Søren Kierkegaard and Martin Heidegger.

 She completed her Ph.D. from Stanford University in 2012. In 2010 she was a DAAD Research Fellow in the Philosophy Faculty of Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg. She has recently published an article on the problem of individuality in Kierkegaard and Karl Löwith. At Yale, she teaches courses on modern Christian thought, phenomenology, existentialism, and on a variety of topics in the philosophy of religion.

Jonathan Kramnick

EnglishMy research and teaching is in eighteenth century literature and philosophy, philosophical approaches to literature, and cognitive science and the arts. My first book—Making the English Canon: Print Capitalism and the Cultural Past, 1700-1770 (Cambridge, 1999)—examined the role of criticism and aesthetic theory in the creation of a national literary tradition. My second—Actions and Objects from Hobbes to Richardson (Stanford, 2010)—considered representations of mind and material objects along with theories of action during the long eighteenth century. Building on this study, my current book project asks what distinctive knowledge the literary disciplines and literary form can contribute to discussions of such topics as perceptual consciousness, created and natural environments, and skilled engagement with the world. Portions have appeared in Critical Inquiry and elsewhere. Email Jonathan Kramnick
