Fernando Romero
Clinical Assistant Professor, Writing Program, NYU Shanghai

Fernando Romero is a Clinical Assistant Professor in the Writing Program at NYU Shanghai. Before joining NYU Shanghai, he was Visiting Assistant Professor of Political Science and International Relations at Goucher College. He received his PhD in Political Science from the Johns Hopkins University, where he specialized in international and political theory with a marked humanities bent, drawing from philosophy, history, and literature. His teaching promotes effective writing and interdisciplinary, cross-cultural inquiry, and his research aims to bridge insights across the humanities and sciences, focusing on how human and non-human complex systems reproduce processes that are both self-organizing and self-destructive in technology, society, markets, and thought.
