Simon Gilhooley holds M.A. degrees from Edinburgh University, the University of London, and a PhD from Cornell University (Jan 2014). He is currently a Visiting Assistant Professor in the Political Studies Program at Bard College, and was previously a lecturer at Ithaca College, NY. His research builds upon insights from American politics and political theory, in order to address issues of constitutionality and authority within the American polity. His dissertation seeks to understand the central role of the Constitution's framers within American political life, and the emergence of this centrality within the historical context of the Early American republic. He has received various grants and fellowships, including a Barra Dissertation Fellowship from the McNeil Center for Early American Studies, an Andrew W, Mellon Foundation Fellowship from the Library Company of Philadelphia, a Gilder Lehrman Fellowship from the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American HIstory, and most recently, the Thomas H. Critchlow Award from the Institute for Political History. Arguments taken from the dissertation have appeared in American Political Thought: A Journal of Ideas, Institutions, and Culture.
