Description

Andrew Dilts, Assistant Professor of Political Science, LMU

Andrew Dilts is a political theorist whose work focuses broadly on the history of political thought and the discursive relationships between political membership, subjectivity, sovereignty, and punishment. He is especially interested in the connections between penal policy, race, and “identity” in the United States. Prof. Dilts studied economics at Indiana University before earning his doctorate in political science at the University of Chicago. He is the author of Punishment and Inclusion: Race, Membership, and the Limits of American Liberalism (Fordham University Press, forthcoming) which gives a theoretical account of felon disenfranchisement as it has been practiced in the United States, drawing widely on early modern political theory, post-structuralist French thought, queer theory, disability theory, and critical race theory. He is currently at work on a book-length study of Michel Foucault’s thought in relation to neoliberal economic theories of subjectivity, drawing on Foucault’s lectures at the Collège de France, his late work on the care of the self, and the theory of human capital developed by “Chicago-School” economists. He has published articles have been published in Political Theory, Foucault Studies, New Political Science, PhiloSOPHIA, and The Carceral Notebooks.
