James Lindley Wilson, University of Chicago Political Science Professor
Please join us for a live-streamed event on October 20, 2021 at 12:00 p.m. with University of Chicago Political Science Professor James Lindley Wilson when he will discuss his recently published book Democratic Equality. You may register for this event by following the link at the bottom of this email.
Democratic Equality articulates the moral force of the democratic idea that all citizens are equal political authorities. The book also addresses practical political controversies—for example, criticizing unequal representation in the U.S. Senate and Electoral College; defending the legitimacy of campaign finance regulation; addressing the fair representation of groups, including racial minorities; and explaining the proper place of judicial review in a democracy.
Professor Wilson received his PhD in Politics from Princeton University in 2011, and a JD from Yale Law School in 2007. His research interests span political philosophy, ethics, and law. Most of his work focuses on normative democratic theory, including the moral evaluation of democracy and questions of what democratic ideals require of citizens and institutions. He also writes on the history of political thought (with emphasis on democratic thought), including the work of Aristotle, Kant, and the Federalists, and has published articles in the American Political Science Review, the Review of Politics, and Representation.
