Johan Andreas Trovik is a third year graduate student in the Department of Politics. In his dissertation research, he explores the idea of work as it figures in the discourse of welfare capitalism, in critiques of work and in both utopian and dystopian “post-work” imaginaries. In particular, recognizing how deeply the idea of work has taken hold of our understanding of democratic participation, and the modern ethical imagination more broadly, he is interested in investigating attempts to unsettle its hegemony. Trovik also has broad interests in the history of political thought, social philosophy and critical theory. Before coming to Princeton, Johan completed a B.A. in philosophy, politics and economics at the University of Oxford.
