Michael Hardt

Jack H. Neely Associate Professor of Literature (2005 - 2007)

Professor Hardt’s domain is critical theory and twentieth century French and Italian philosophy and political theory. Dr. Hardt explores politics, trade, culture, and literature with a remarkable intellectual maturity. Professor Hardt has also earned a laudatory reputation as a teacher. His students roundly praise him for his strengths as a listener as well as a lecturer and his willingness to go the extra mile and beyond to help them. One went so far as to label him “the perfect college professor,” combining humor, understanding, intelligence, and accessibility.
