Academic Mentoring


We’re interested in hearing from students with serious academic interests in Objectivism and related topics, particularly (but not exclusively) in philosophy. (We’re currently mentoring a small handful of students, mostly in philosophy.) In addition to philosophy, Carrie-Ann Biondi has degrees in, and interests in, American Studies (especially the literature of the “American Renaissance,” e.g., Emerson and Thoreau). In addition to philosophy, Irfan Khawaja has interests in (and has published on) Near East Studies and Islamic Studies, with more specialized interests in the work of Edward Said. (For Khawaja’s writing on the latter subjects, visit his Academia page.) 

Feel free to contact us, and we can discuss an individualized program of academic mentoring, whether to improve your work in your current coursework, or to help you think through your future academic plans. Schedule permitting, we can meet in person with students in the New York City metropolitan area. If your questions are outside of our area of academic expertise, contact us anyway, and we can look into the possibility of getting you connected with someone better suited to help you.
