Tim Huzar works at the intersection of cultural studies and critical theory, and completed his PhD titled ‘Themes of Visibility in Rancière, Butler and Cavarero’ in 2017.
His research focuses on the relationship between politics and violence, with special interest in the legacies of the Atlantic slave trade and feminist philosophy. Tim engages the work of Adriana Cavarero, Saidiya Hartman, Fred Moten, Jacques Rancière and Judith Butler, among others.
Tim trained in the Humanities degree programme at University of Brighton, which placed a strong emphasis on politically engaged interdisciplinary study. Tim’s PhD brought together the thought of Jacques Rancière, Judith Butler and Adriana Cavarero, identifying visibility as a key theme in their respective accounts of politics.
He has organised many conferences, notably a 2015 conference on Elaine Scarry’s The Body in Pain (with Leila Dawney) and a 2017 conference on the work of Adriana Cavarero (with Clare Woodford and Mark Devenney). Tim is a Co-Editor of the journal Critical Studies, and has published his research in various international journals.
