Steve Wexler teaches courses in critical theory, literature and film, rhetoric of science, rhetorical theory, and popular culture. Dr. Wexler’s work appears in College Composition and Communication, Kairos, Science & Society, Works & Days, and Workplace: A Journal for Academic Labor, where he served as guest editor for a special issue on mental labor. He has presented papers at CCCC, Rhetoric Society of America, Historical Materialism Annual Conference, and MIT's Media in Transition. His chapter-essay “Ludwig Wittgenstein: Toward a Dialectical Pragmatism” is featured in Reading as Democracy in Crisis: Interpretation, Theory, History. Dr. Wexler is currently working on Dialectics of Information, a monograph that redefines information and reasoning as a material, historical, and social relation, knowledge as multifarious labor. Put another way, material-social history is the non-reductive level of abstraction (LoA) to bind them all. The book restores totality to reductive accounts of reason and concludes that revolutionary post-capitalism depends in part on radical epistemology.
