Dr. Frankowski earned his Ph.D. from the University of Oregon where he studied continental philosophy, philosophy of race, and aesthetics. His primary research interest focuses on the role of remembrance and injustice. More broadly, he is interested in the social importance of the history of philosophy, literature, and the arts.
He is currently working on a book length manuscript called The Cassandra Complex: On Violence, Racism, and Mourning, that analyzes the role of post-racial memory in the context of the aesthetics of memorials to cultural trauma.
