Nora Hanagan
Lecturing Fellow of Political Science

Nora Hanagan is a visiting assistant professor of political science.  Her research interests include American political thought, contemporary democratic theory, feminist theory, and environmental political thought. Her research is inspired by the idea that democracy is not simply a  set of political institutions but also a way of life. Professor Hanagan seeks to investigate the ethical obligations that accompany democratic citizenship while considering how citizens might fulfill these obligations in societies that are imperfectly democratic. Much of her work puts historical American thinkers—such as Jane Addams and Martin Luther King Jr.—in dialogue with contemporary democratic theorists.
