He specializes in democratic theory and twentieth-century political thought. In his work, Kyong-Min examines how the idea and practice of democracy is historically shaped by surrounding political, socioeconomic, and technological conditions, and engages in contemporary debates in light of his findings. Kyong-Min takes an interdisciplinary approach and considers political and social theory along with the philosophy of science and technology studies. In his forthcoming book, <em>The Eclipse of the Demos: The Cold War and the Crisis of Democracy before Neoliberalism</em> (University Press of Kansas, May 2020), Kyong-Min traces the current crisis of democracy to a multifaceted transformation of democratic theory during the Cold War. He is currently writing a book on the rise of finance capital and its implications for democratic citizenship.</p></div><div class="ExternalClass49857B590E5A48359BCA98B48796F490"><p> </p><p> <em>The Eclipse of the Demos: The Cold War and the Crisis of Democracy before Neoliberalism</em> (University Press of Kansas, May 2020)</p><p>“The Making of the Neoliberal Subject,” <em>Political Theory</em> 47:2 (2019).</p><p>“What is Populism?
