Mari's studies took her from Brown to the University of Paris and Harvard; from international development to sociology, and eventually comparative literature after she became increasingly interested in contemporary theory and philosophy. Her work targets the intersection of critical theory, psychoanalysis, and continental philosophy. Plus, she also had the privilege of studying psychoanalytic theory with the legendary Julia Kristeva at the University of Paris.
Currently, Mari is Associate Professor of Critical Theory at the University of Toronto, and she splits her time between Toronto, Hawaii, and the East Coast. Visit Mari's newly launched website, which, she informs us, is still a work in progress. So far, much like her work, it's contemporary and quite eloquent.
