I'm Professor of French Studies at Louisiana State University. I got my PhD in Philosophy from Loyola University Chicago in 1990. I wrote my dissertation on Heidegger and Derrida's reading of Aristotle on time.
I also maintain an academic website at www.protevi.com/john, where you can find my CV, research papers, and course materials.
The picture you see is of me with my wife, Kate Jensen, who is also an Associate Professor in the Department of French Studies at LSU.
