PhD Candidate in Government

I am a PhD student studying political theory and intellectual history. My current work examines the emergence of liberal ideas of government, the relationship between ecclesiastical and political jurisdiction in early modern Europe, and democratic processes. I am happy to advise theses on most topics in political theory, in particular those involving early modern and modern political theory, American political thought, democratic political theory and ethics, religion and politics, and ancient/medieval political thought. I have experience teaching for Gov 1060 & 1061 (Ancient and Medieval Political Philosophy and History of Modern Political Thought), for a course on “Dissent and Disobedience in Democracies,” and for a course on “Tech Ethics.” I've also advised an undergrad thesis on Abraham Lincoln and theories of executive power. As an advisor, I value helping students organize their research, providing conceptual feedback on the structure and analysis of a longer piece of work, and offering very detailed stylistic/grammatical edits as needed at the end of the process.
