About

Corey Robin is Distinguished Professor of Political Science at Brooklyn College. He is the author, most recently, of The Enigma of Clarence Thomas, which the New York Times called “razor-sharp…gratifying and unsettling…[an] incisive and superbly argued book.” Robin is also the author of The Reactionary Mind: Conservatism from Edmund Burke to Donald Trump—hailed by The New Yorker as “the book that predicted Trump”—and Fear: The History of a Political Idea, which won the Best First Book in Political Theory Award from the American Political Science Association. His essays have appeared in The New Yorker, Harper’s, The London Review of Books, and other venues. Robin has received multiple grants and awards, including fellowships from the Cullman Center for Scholars and Writers at the New York Public Library, the Russell Sage Foundation, and the American Council of Learned Societies. He has been the subject of profiles in the The New York Times (“the quintessential public intellectual for the digital age”), the Chronicle of Higher Education (“one of academe’s most persistent brawlers”), and Tablet (“a Sartre for the social-media age”). He has appeared on NPR, MSNBC, and other media outlets, and his writings have been translated into thirteen languages. Robin can be contacted at corey.robin@gmail.com.
