“I seek innovative general interest and academic books in law, political theory, and philosophy, including those that intersect with other disciplines or speak to current events. I especially welcome manuscripts on human rights, immigration, and incarceration; the Supreme Court and Constitution; liberalism and its critics; feminist political theory; moral philosophy, epistemology, and the philosophy of science. I also consider book projects in related fields of intellectual history, especially those that expand canons. Most of all, I seek and work to cultivate well-made arguments and purposeful storytelling.”
