Avram Alpert researches literature and critical theory with a focus on the impact of globalization on modern thought and institutions.  His writing examines what it means to be at once a private individual and a global subject, and how this dual demand has shaped modern life.  His first book offers a global history of the self, from Renaissance Europe to modern Japan. He also writes art criticism and fiction.
