Adrian Tătăran is a PhD Candidate in comparative literature at the Faculty of Letters, Babeş-Bolyai University, Cluj – Romania. His research addresses the possible connections that can be established between a specific anarchist imaginary and the various literary and theoretical expressions of anarchism, both contemporary and classical. His research interests also include 19th century french literature, the history of social movements, phenomenology, critical theory and different contemporary theoretical approaches, such as black metal theory or the broader spectrum of speculative realism. He also participated in the debates of the Metacritic Circle at the Faculty of Letters, with a contribution at the opening of the first season in 2010 on the role and relevance of literature and literary theory nowadays: „La ce bun literatura? Schiţa unui parcurs radical” (To what good the literature? Outlines of a radical journey).
