Clinton Williamson, PhD
Postdoctoral Associate
Boston University
Kilachand Honors College

Dr. Williamson researches the relationship between resistances to work and communistic poiesis in nineteenth- and twentieth-century American literature and culture. His current project explores how cultural representations of life outside the wage relation during the latter half of the nineteenth century evince a social desire to abolish the form of wage labor itself. In tracing a political economic theorizing from below, this project attends to the ways in which anti-work politics manifest in the assembly of improvisatory commons rooted in a restaging of value. His public writing has appeared in The Nation, The Baffler, The New Inquiry, Protean, and Truth Out among other venues.
