Nicholas is a PhD Candidate in Literature. His dissertation, "Under Writing," theorizes capitalist money as a system of writing by bringing 20th and 21st century economic theory into conversation with three contemporary novels that narrate and theorize these problematics: Tom McCarthy's Remainder
, K.D.'s Headless
, and Darin Bradley's Chimpanzee.
His work draws in particular on Marx's and Marxist theories of value, post-Keynesian and Chartalist treatments of "money of account," and the emergent discourse of critical or "new" finance studies. He has taught classes on contemporary fiction, utopian/dystopian studies, fiction and finance, automation, and bank robbery.
