Jeremy Fernando is the Jean Baudrillard Fellow and a Reader in Contemporary Literature & Thought at the European Graduate School; and a Fellow of Tembusu College at the National University of Singapore. He works in the intersections of literature, philosophy, and the media, and has been described as having an “erudition and grasp of theory balanced by a playful approach to popular culture and, in real life, a sartorial elan that does, indeed, match his sobriquet.” (Walter Mason) His approach to thought, to thinking—a thinking that owes a great debt to many others, especially, Avital Ronell, Hélène Cixous, Jean Baudrillard, and Werner Hamacher—that results in Fernando being called “the last romantic thinker in Singapore.” (Denisa Kera)
