Giovanna Borradori is a Professor of Philosophy, specializing in representations of political violence—including war and terrorism, migration, and the postcolony—and the philosophy of photography. In all of her work, Borradori has interrogated the margins between different lineages and traditions, effectively opening new channels of communication between them. She is the editor of Recoding Metaphysics: The New Italian Philosophy(Northwestern University Press, 1988), the first anthology of Italian contemporary philosophy to be published in English. She is also the author of two books: The American Philosopher (University of Chicago Press, 1993), dedicated to fostering a dialogue between analytical and Continental philosophy, and Philosophy in a Time of Terror. Dialogues with Jürgen Habermas and Jacques Derrida (University of Chicago Press, 2003), the first philosophical appraisal of the war on terror, now translated into eighteen languages. Some of her book chapters, essays, and book-reviews have been published nationally and internationally and are available on this website. In addition to teaching at Vassar, Borradori has been a visiting professor at the Graduate School of Architecture, Columbia University, at the Universidad de Antioquia, Medellín, Colombia, at the International University College of Turin, Italy, and at Université Jean Moulin Lyon 3, in Lyon, France.
