Darius Lerup is a third-year PhD student in the department of French researching the intersection between Georges Bataille, Jean-Luc Nancy and Gilles Deleuze in philosophy, literature, and film.

Recently, Darius completed two terms as a visiting student in the department of Cinema and Media Studies at the University of Chicago during which he worked with D. N. Rodowick among others, and is an assistant editor of World Picture.
