Heike Schotten

C. Heike Schotten is associate professor of political science and an affiliated faculty in women’s and gender studies. Her research interests lie at the various intersections of queer theory, Nietzsche studies, biopolitics, the war on terror and liberatory critical theory. Drawing on each of these areas, her research theorizes the various meaning of and possibilities for human emancipation within the specific contexts of US imperialism, US settler colonialism and historically still-hegemonic Euro-American constructs of knowledge and knowing.
