What Will Political Science Look Like in 40 Years?

Professor Joan Tronto from the University of Minnesota will deliver a Keynote lecture to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the Political Science Department at Gustavus. Professor Joan Tronto received her Ph.D. from Princeton University and specializes in contemporary political theory, especially feminist political theory, the feminist ethic of care, and democratic political theory. She also has expertise about the women's movement in American politics.

Prior to joining the U of M, she served as director of women's studies and professor of political science at Hunter College, and was a visiting professor at the University for Humanist Studies in the Netherlands, Yale University, and the Institute for Humanist Studies in Vienna. She also was a Fulbright Fellow at the University of Bologna and a Laurence S. Rockefeller and Visiting Fellow at Princeton's University Center for Human Values. Tronto's publications include Moral Boundaries: A Political Argument for an Ethic of Care (1993), Women Transforming Politics: An Alternative Reader (1997), and numerous articles in leading journals in political theory and women's studies.

This lecture is supported by a generous gift from Kathryn Christenson.
