Adam Proctor is a PhD student in Cultural Studies at George Mason University, where he studies political economy, Neo-Marxian state theory and class formation, labor history in the 20th century, and the development of racial formations. He is particularly interested in the formation of the postwar power bloc in the United States and how this configuration has produced a variety of surplus, de-classed populations through its unraveling and contradictory development in the latter half of the 20th century.
