We know lots of you have questions about kritiks. That’s why, beginning next week, we’re introducing a new column: Ask a K Hack!


Need help understanding Foucault, Nietzsche, or the cap K? Unsure about how to answer psychoanalysis? Want to know if Heidegger was really a Nazi? We can help!


Ask a K Hack will take your critical theory, philosophy, and kritik questions and provide you with clear, simple answers (and maybe just a little sass) designed to help you win those K debates.


We’re partnering with Eugene Wolters of critical-theory.com and have a range of super-smart people standing by waiting to answer your all your toughest kritikal kwestions. We’ll make sure the person who answers your specific question is not only a successful debater/coach, but also well-read in the literature base you’re asking about.


So, what are you waiting for? Address your burning questions to AskaKHack@gmail.com! We’ll run the first Q&A next week.
