Tyler Harper received his B.A. in English from Haverford College in 2014, and joined NYU’s PhD program in the fall of that year. His research interests include romantic and modernist poetry, literary science fiction, political ecology, and contemporary philosophy (analytic and continental). More specifically, his work in these areas focuses on the relationship between poetry and science (especially poetic responses to the mathematization of nature), the relationship between mathematical and poetic language, philosophical naturalism and realism, philosophy of mind, science fiction and political ecology, and the aesthetics of environmental crisis. He has also translated the work of French anthropologist and political theorist, Sylvain Lazarus.
