Kim Su Rasmussen holds an MA in Literature and History of Ideas and a Ph.D. in History of Ideas from the University of Aarhus, Denmark. He is presently a Research Assistant Professor at the Department for Cultural Studies and the Arts, Comparative Literature and Studies in Modern Culture, University of Copenhagen, Denmark. Rasmussen's current research project is entitled Den europćiske racisms idéhistorie (The History of Ideas of European Racism). The research project is an examination of the history of ideas of European racism from 18th century through the end of the 20th centuty. The project's objective is partly to map racism's conceptual development from the Enlightenment to the end of the 20th century, partly to track the premises for the new cultural racism that arose in the 1980s. The project is structured with the intention of communicating a broad knowledge of the history of racism as a foundation for current developments as well as to contribute to the development of new and more effective strategies in the struggle against racism. Previous publications include a book on Paul Celan, an anthology on Gilles Deleuze (editor), and articles on Paul Celan, Gilles Deleuze, Maurice Blanchot, and Frantz Fanon.
