Dr. Ford's research is currently divided into two projects. The first is an investigation into the historical relation between philosophy and comedy with an emphasis on the ethical and political relevance of the latter. The second is a book-length manuscript treating Deleuze’s early work – through Difference and Repetition – as a reply to Kant and German Idealism. He is the author of several recent essays and articles, and has also translated Pierre Klossowski's Such a Deathly Desire for SUNY Press (2007). In addition to working at Elmhurst, Dr. Ford is also the Vice-President of Ford Personnel, Inc., a Denver-based legal staffing agency.
