Bill Brown

Karla Scherer Distinguished Service Professor in American Culture University of Chicago


Bill Brown works at the intersection of literary, visual, and material cultures, with an emphasis on what he calls "object relations in an expanded field." Brown asks how inanimate objects enable human subjects (individually and collectively) to form and transform themselves—and indeed how objects and subjects transform one another.
