Aglaia Kiarina Kordela (Greek: Αγλαΐα Κιαρίνα Κορδέλα; born July 13, 1963) is a Greek-American philosopher and critical theorist. She is a professor of German Studies and founding director of the Critical Theory Program at Macalester College in Saint Paul, MN. She is also Honorary Adjunct Professor at the Writing and Society Research Center, University of Western Sydney, Australia. She writes and teaches on a wide range of topics, notably psychoanalysis, political, literary and film theory, and biopolitics.
Her primary approach and focus is on the relation between economic structures and metaphysics in secular capitalist modernity. Kordela is known for her reinterpretation of Lacanian psychoanalysis and Foucauldian biopolitics using the work of Spinoza. Her philosophical inquiries have ramifications for a variety of contemporary social issues and academic fields of study, including Postcolonial Studies, Critical Race Theory, Critical Terrorism Studies, Comparative Literature, and Film Studies.
