Comparative Politics

Statement

Main areas of study are contemporary thought, feminist theory, democratic theory, continental philosophy, notions of self, political agency, deliberation, and identity. I am interested in exploring how we theorize democratic processes and institutions that are meaningfully inclusive and to critically examine how (and how much) the framework of deliberation ought to be responsive to difference. As a former Canadian Member of Parliament, I am interested in finding applications to policy formation and gaining insight from observing and studying the political process.
