I am a Visiting Assistant Professor of Government at Hamilton College. My research and teaching focus on political theory and American politics. Specifically, I focus on contemporary normative political philosophy, political economy, liberalism and its critics, theories of social justice, and theories of post-liberalism. My research specializes on constructing American Transcendentalism as a political doctrine in the context of theories of post-liberalism and in the context of ideological traditions such as liberalism, Marxism, fascism, and Islamism.
