Overview

Focused on the historians, poets, and philosophers of Ancient Greece, my research seeks resources in these past thinkers for contemporary democratic theory and practice. With completed projects exploring the topics of law, judgment, persuasion, justice, property, and nature, I am currently writing on the question of constitution, the relation between aesthetics and politics, and the practice of power in Plato and Aristotle, Aeschylus, Sophocles, and Thucydides.
