Biography: 

Benjamin Y. Fong came to Barrett from the University of Chicago, where he was a Harper-Schmidt Fellow in the Society of Fellows and a Collegiate Assistant Professor in the Social Sciences Division. He studies power and ideology in the forms of religion, psychology, and drugs.

He is currently working on a short book called Drugs in the History of Capitalism, which should be completed some time in 2021. He is also co-editing a volume with Craig Calhoun on The Green New Deal and the Future of Work in America, which will be published by Columbia University Press. His first book, Death and Mastery: Psychoanalytic Drive Theory and the Subject of Late Capitalism, which seeks to strengthen the psychoanalytic dimension of first generation critical theory in the hopes of rejuvenating its conception of subjection in late capitalism, was published in 2016 by Columbia University Press.
