Professor Jill Locke teaches a range of courses in the history of political thought, democratic theory, and feminist theory. She has served as Chair of the Political Science department and Director of the Gender, Women, and Sexuality Studies program at Gustavus. Professor Locke has also published several articles, essays, and reviews and is the co-editor of Feminist Interpretations of Alexis de Tocqueville (Pennsylvania State University Press, 2009) and the author of Democracy and the Death of Shame: Political Equality and Social Disturbance (Cambridge University Press, 2016). She has held fellowships from the Charlotte W. Newcombe Foundation (1999-2000), the Center for Ethics and Public Affairs at Tulane University (2006-07), and the School of Social Science at the Institute for Advanced Study, where she participated in Professor Danielle Allen's Egalitarianisms seminar (2014-15). She is currently working on a new project, tentatively titled Revolting Children, about youth activism and the ways in which the figure of the "the child" circulates in both political theory and activist politics.
During the 2015-16 academic year, Professor Locke will be teaching: Political and Legal Thinking (Fall, Spring); Sex, Power, and Politics (Fall); The Politics of Race and Racism in the US (Fall); The Promise of Political Freedom (Spring); and Feminist Political Thought (Spring).
