Duane Rousselle is Assistant Professor of Social Theory in the Department of Social Sciences at the University of New Brunswick in Saint John where he teaches courses in Social Theory and Qualitative Methodologies in the Social Sciences.

He is the editor of the open-access journal Anarchist Developments in Cultural Studies. He also maintains a private practice in psychoanalysis. His current research interests are in the area of psychoanalytic interventions into social and political theory, as well as psychoanalytic interventions into debates about autism, borderline, and psychosis. He latest work assesses alternatives to the "mental market," which, Rousselle maintains, is implicated in a specific capitalist discourse of enjoyment. Jacques Lacan had a name for this type of discourse: "capitalist discourse."
