I teach the political science department’s introductory political theory course every year, usually in the fall. I teach the Money and Politics course in the spring of even-numbered years and the Campaigns and Elections course in the fall of even-numbered years. I teach the other courses occasionally. Links to recent syllabi for my courses are below. Among these courses, the Money and Politics course was supported in 2012 by a Davis Foundation grant for Clark University’s LEEP (Liberal Education and Effective Practice) program, and the Legislative Redistricting course was taught in conjunction with Clark’s Mosakowski Institute, and is discussed in a recent issue PS: Political Science and Politics.
Political Science 203: Political Theorists and their Theories
Subject matter varies from one year to the next; last time around we read Plato’s dialogues.
Political Science 206: Modern and Postmodern Political Theory
This class picks up where Roots of Political Theory leaves off.
Political Science 220: Legislative Redistricting: The Geography of Politics
Co-taught with James Gomes, director of the Mosakowski Institute. This class was designed to coincide with the 2012 redistricting, so it probably won’t be taught again until 2022!
