William Bruce Parsons Jr.
Associate Professor of the Practice in the Social Science Research Institute

My research examines early modernity, Christianity and the thought of Niccolo Machiavelli. My current project examines Machiavelli's creative appropriation of history to further his project. I have teaching interests in the broad history of political thought, from ancient political thought to late modernity, including American political thought.
