Daniel Binswanger Friedman

Graduate Student


Daniel studied philosophy and mathematics at the University of Oregon before completing an M.F.A. in poetry at CUNY Brooklyn College. Through the support of the Fulbright and DAAD Foundations he then spent the next three years studying and writing in Vienna and Berlin. He is a member of the translation collective VERSATORIUM and continues to actively work on new poetry and prose projects. Daniel's chief interests center around 20th century German-language philosophy and literature, in particular Austrian literature, the origins of analytic and non-analytic philosophies of language, and the 20th century novel. He also has a fascination with pronouns, Russian syntax, and the question of whether words and numbers are objects.
