David Gutherz

Teaching Fellow in the Social Sciences

David Max Gutherz was born on Kibbutz Gezer and spent most of his youth in Lynchburg, Virginia. After studying the philosophy of religion at Oberlin College, David received his MA and PhD at the Committee on Social Thought. He is interested in historicizing the cultural, scientific, and affective practices that make authoritarianism seem reasonable and is currently working on a book entitled, The Great Unbinding: Fascism and the Italian Origins of a Global New Left, which is based on the dissertation he submitted in 2019. In addition to publishing scholarly essays, David has also collaborated on a number of podcasts, mostly for NPR's Invisibilia and the New Books Network, and translated works by Ernesto de Martino, Elvio Fachinelli, and the DEMAU collective.
