AUGUST 2021: A review of my book, written by Jennifer Mensch, came out in Society for German Idealism and Romanticism (SGIR) Review 4/1-2: 127-132; here is an excerpt: In Dilek Huseyinzadegan’s analysis of Kant’s “impure” politics, what we have is a startling, innovative, and ultimately convincing portrait of Kant’s systematic attention to the material conditions underlying the everyday world of political subjects…. Overall, this is a rich and engaging account of Kant’s political views, and it is to Huseyinzadegan’s great credit that even scholars long familiar with the contours of Kant’s works—both ideal and impure—will find much to learn from this book.”

JUNE 2021: I am happy and honored to be a part of the Feminist Translation Collective with Pluto Press, a collective of feminist scholars and activists translating Gülten Kisanak’s 2018 edited volume depicting Kurdish women who have served in local and general politics and are currently imprisoned, The Purple Color of Kurdish Politics (English translation will be available in 2022).

FEBRUARY 2021: A review of my book, written by Susan Shell, came out in Kantian Review 26/1: 168-171; here is an excerpt:, “[A]s Huseyinzadegan instructively brings out, Kant’s own attraction to misleading narratives was balanced by rational principles with universal application to all human beings. And it is by the adequacy of those principles that Kant’s practical philosophy must ultimately be judged. Huseyinzadegan’s original and provocative application of the concept of purposiveness to that larger project is thus especially welcome.”
