Benjamin Stumpf

Ph.D. Candidate


Education: Hampshire College, BA, Philosophy

Research interests: I am interested in modern and contemporary political theory; critical theory and political economy; ethics; feminism, antiracism, and liberation philosophy; critical prison studies; critical war studies; and philosophy of social science. My current research explores how political prisoners, liberation activists, critical theorists, and global radical intellectuals responded to the development of the US carceral state and foreign policy since the 1960s. I am also studying the politics of police de/militarization in global Connecticut. My work has been published in Radical Philosophy Review (2020) and Black Issues in Philosophy (2021).
