D. Graham Burnett

D. Graham Burnett is a teacher, writer, and interdisciplinary maker based in New York City. Burnett’s creative work has its origins in contemporary dance and practices of meditation, though he hybridizes somatic/contemplative disciplines with the conventions and forms of scholarly inquiry. He is concerned with historical phenomenology, hermeneutics, and experimental pedagogy, and all his work circles problems of knowledge (especially knowledge of nature) and the human relationship to the past. Burnett has a PhD in the History and Philosophy of Science (Cambridge, UK), and he holds a faculty appointment at Princeton University, where he teaches in the Interdisciplinary Doctoral Program in the Humanities. He makes work under several pseudonyms and heteronyms, and his practice centers on collaboration — both real and imagined.
