Short biography
Smith College profile:
I graduated from the University of Dallas with a major in English and a minor in Art. I attended graduate school at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, in City and Regional Planning. But not liking the program, I returned to the University of Dallas to do a Masters and a Ph.D. in Political Science. I taught at Kenyon College in Ohio for five years, then at Idaho State University for two years, before coming to Smith College in 1985. My teaching areas include political philosophy, especially ancient and early modern political philosophy, and American political thought.

I do research and write on some of the major figures of Western political thought: Thucydides, Plato, Aristotle, Machiavelli, Hobbes, Locke, Marx -- and Shakespeare. Future research will focus on American political thought and on the Scottish Enlightenment.
