Char R. Miller is an associate professor in the Schar School of Policy and Government at George Mason University. His work focuses on political aesthetics, sovereignty, and disciplinary technologies.

His book Cities on the Plains examines the roles of violence in consolidating political communities. His previous book, Taylored Citizenship, explored conceptions of economic discipline in the 20th century. His current book project examines the power of money and its relations to political sovereignty. He is also working on a project that treats Paul of Tarsus as a useful interlocutor in thinking about global catastrophes, such as the ongoing environmental crisis.
