Yu-jin Chang teaches European literature and philosophy and has recently completed a study of Walter Benjamin and Maurice Blanchot titled "Disaster and Hope."
The study examines the closely related aesthetic conceptions of time and history by these two writers, arguably the two most influential literary theorists of the last century, down to their philosophical origins in, respectively, Leibniz's monadology and Nietzsche's concept of eternal return.
