Brief Bio

Bryan Smyth (PhD, McGill) is Visiting Assistant Professor of Philosophy. He has taught at UM since 2013, prior to which he held visiting positions at the University of Memphis and Mount Allison University. His research deals primarily with phenomenology and Critical Theory, in particular how these traditions intersect methodologically with regard to nature and history. In addition to numerous articles, he published Merleau-Ponty's Existential Phenomenology and the Realization of Philosophy in 2014 (Bloomsbury), and his annotated translation of Merleau-Ponty's Le monde sensible et le monde de l'expression will appear in 2020 (Northwestern University Press). He is currently co-editing (with Richard Westerman) a volume of new essays on phenomenology and Marxism, which will be published by Lexington Books; he is translating Merleau-Ponty's Recherches sur l'usage litt�raire du langage (also for Northwestern), for which he received funding from the NEH; and he is drafting a short monograph entitled Incarnating the Good: Rethinking Heroism as an Embodied Phenomenon. He is President of the Society for Existential and Phenomenological Theory and Culture, serves on the editorial board of Heroism Studies, and is Critical Theory Reviews Co-Editor for Symposium: Canadian Journal of Continental Philosophy.
