Doing political theory requires conceptual clarity, argumentative rigour, and an informed understanding of the real-world problems to which it responds, sometimes including their historical origins. In my teaching I aim to enable students to develop these skills in an even measure.
Before teaching at Manchester, I have taught undergraduates and graduates in political theory, history of political thought, and ethics and moral philosophy, at the Universities of Freiburg, Oxford, and Frankfurt, and at the European University Institute, Florence.
