Jeremy David Engels

Professor of Communication Arts and Sciences, Penn State

Jeremy David Engels investigates the rituals and rhetoric of oneness—how human beings talk about oneness, interconnectedness, interbeing, and union, and then how they attempt to enact their imaginative visions in action.

He is the author of The Ethics of Oneness: Emerson, Whitman, and the Bhagavad Gita (Chicago, 2021), The Art of Gratitude (SUNY, 2018), The Politics of Resentment: A Genealogy (Penn State, 2015), and Enemyship: Democracy and Counter-Revolution in the Early Republic (Michigan State, 2010). For his work, he has been awarded the Karl Wallace Award and the New Investigator Award from the National Communication Association. Jeremy is also a yoga teacher and the co-owner of Yoga Lab Studio in State College, PA.
