Stephanie Erev is assistant professor of political theory at Portland State University. She earned her doctoral degree from Johns Hopkins University in 2019. Erev's work has appeared in such journals as Environmental Humanities, Political Theory, and Democratic Theory, with new essays forthcoming in New Political Science and the Handbook of Environmental Politics, Activism, and Theory.
Erev's research and teaching interests include affect theory, critical race theory, ecofeminism, multispecies and extinction studies, pluralism, process philosophy, and the tragic. Her current book project explores the thesis that the subjective experiences of human beings are best understood as more-than-human compositions. Entitled More-than-Human Subjectivities, it draws upon Michel Foucault's notion of subjectivation and Gilles Deleuze's idea of organic synthesis to show how the activities of nonhumans help to compose human experiences of time, colors, sounds, flavors, and even aesthetic preference.
Erev is a member of the BioPolitica research network.
