Michael Warner is Seymour H. Knox Professor of English and Department Chair at Yale University.  He is the author of several groundbreaking works of queer theory, early American studies, and public sphere theory, including  The Letters of the Republic, Publication and the Public Sphere in Eighteenth-Century America (1990); Publics and Counerpublics (2002); and The Trouble with Normal (1999), and is the editor of Fear of a Queer Planet: Queer Politics and Social Theory (1993); The English Literatures of America (1997); American Sermons(1999); and The Portable Walt Whitman (2003).  He is currently at work on two books that address secularism, both now and in the Federal and antebellum periods.  The first, Varieties of Secularism in a Secular Age is a collection of essays in response to the work of Charles Taylor.  The second, the Evangelical Public Sphere in Eighteenth-Century America is based on the Rosenbach lectures he delivered in spring 2009.
