  • Professor

Andrew J. Douglas has taught at Morehouse since 2011. A political theorist, his writings and course offerings explore intellectual histories of Black radicalism, critical theories of capitalism, and, increasingly, heterodox approaches to public finance and the philosophy of money. He is currently working on a new book, tentatively titled “Counterpublic Money: Monetary Experimentation in the Black Radical Tradition,” as well as an edited volume of W.E.B. Du Bois’s writings on political economy.

Douglas is the author of three books: Prophet of Discontent: Martin Luther King Jr. and the Critique of Racial Capitalism (2021), coauthored with Jared Loggins; W.E.B. Du Bois and the Critique of the Competitive Society (2019); and In the Spirit of Critique: Thinking Politically in the Dialectical Tradition (2013). Articles and other writings have appeared in, among other outlets, the Du Bois Review, The C.L.R. James Journal, Constellations, Philosophy and Social Criticism, Contemporary Political Theory, The Review of Politics, Boston Review, Academe, and Political Theory. Douglas was a 2016-2017 residential research fellow at the Whitney Humanities Center at Yale University. He is a member of the AAUP’s subcommittee on Historically Black Colleges and Institutions and has served in various faculty governance roles at Morehouse. Douglas received his B.A. from the University of California at Berkeley and his Ph.D. from the University of Virginia.
