Matt Lovett is a PhD Candidate in Philosophy at Duquesne University. He currently is an adjunct instructor of Philosophy at Duquesne, Visiting Instructor of Philosophy at West Virginia University, and teaches Introduction to Feminist Theory at Pitt. He specializes in 19th and 20th Century Continental Philosophy, Psychoanalysis, Aesthetics, and Feminist and Queer Theory. His dissertation research demonstrates the centrality of sexual difference for Deleuze’s differential ontology and for Lacanian psychoanalysis. This argument seeks to reconcile a tension in feminist theories of the body (i.e., does the sexed body have ontological primacy, or is the “sexed” body always already materialized only in and through relations of power and discourse?) by elaborating the psychoanalytic account of sexual difference and its relation to embodiment via Deleuze and Lacan. Matt has taught introductory courses, courses on ethics and moral problems, and created and led a study abroad course to Berlin, Germany. He’s also into techno.
