Joel KovelJoel Kovel was born in 1936 in Brooklyn, NY, to an immigrant Ukrainian-Jewish family. As a youngster his great love was science; however, the breadth of his interests as well as increasing engagement in society led him to medicine and then psychiatry and psychoanalysis, in which career he eventually became Professor and Director of the Residency Training Program in Psychiatry at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine.

The Vietnam War and the crises of the 1960s caused him to move sharply to the political left, to begin what became a vocation as a writer, and to engage the study of Marx. Intellectually, this set going a conflict with his identity as a Freudian psychoanalyst, and spurred further work. Another dimension was added when his activism in the antiwar movement and in defense of the Sandinista revolution in Nicaragua brought Kovel into contact with radical Christians. Combined with mounting dissatisfaction with the health care system, this resulted in a departure from medicine, psychiatry and psychoanalysis in 1985. In 1988 Kovel joined the faculty of Bard College as Alger Hiss Professor of Social Studies, and remained there until 2009 when he was let go in a highly contentious case involving his political activity, especially in regard to anti-Zionism.

Kovel has written ten books reflecting his complex political and intellectual engagement. White Racism (1971) was nominated for a National Book Award; The Age of Desire (1982) detailed his Marx-Freud period; Against the State of Nuclear Terror (1982) and In Nicaragua (1986) recount his political activism of the 1980s; History and Spirit (1991), written with the support of a Guggenheim Grant, attempts a synthesis of spirituality and historical materialism; and Red Hunting in the Promised Land (1994) is a study of ideology that approaches the problem of anticommunism in the history of the United States.

 By the late 1980s, Kovel began what has been his chief concern in recent years: overcoming the ecological crisis, which he considers to be a manifestation of the reckless expansionism of the capitalist system. He joined the editorial collective of the academic quarterly, Capitalism Nature Socialism, and became its Editor-in-Chief in 2003. This project included a brief electoral career on behalf of the Green Party, in which he ran for the US Senate for New York in 1998 and sought the party’s presidential nomination in 2000. Turning again to writing, he composed his 2002 work, The Enemy of Nature (Second edition 2007), dedicated to the propagation of “ecosocialism.” This was accompanied by the founding in 2007 of the Ecosocialist International Network. Kovel’s latest book, Overcoming Zionism (2007) advocating a “One-State” solution to the problem of Palestine, caused a furor upon its publication, and was briefly banned from circulation by its distributor owing to pressure from the Israel Lobby.

Kovel has always been internationally minded. He has lectured on six continents, and has made seven trips to South Africa, beginning in 1989, when he was one of the first foreign intellectuals invited by the democratic resistance as the academic blockade became lifted. He was a fellow of the Centre for Civil Society at UKZN in 2006. Other notable appearances include being the keynote speaker invited by the Government of Brazil for its national environmental conference in 2008; and most recently, as the keynote speaker at Fudan University in Shanghai, PRC, for their conference on “Marxism and Ecological Civilization.”
