David Theo Goldberg is Director of the Humanities Research Institute and Executive Director of the Digital Media and Learning Research Hub at the University of California, Irvine. He holds faculty appointments as a professor of comparative literature, anthropology, criminology, law, and society at UC Irvine. His work focuses on political theory, race and racism, ethics, critical theory, and digital humanities. Among his publications are The Threat of Race (2009) and Between Humanities and the Digital (ed. with Patrik Svensson, 2015). In his latest book, Are We All Postracial Yet? (2015), Goldberg argues that the apparent advent of a “postracial” age indicates a new logic of raciality. Goldberg is a member of HKW’s Program Advisory Board.
