Demetra Fannie Kasimis

I am an assistant professor in the Department of Political Science at the University of Chicago. Within political theory, I focus on the thought and politics of Greek antiquity and their modern receptions as well as questions of citizenship, immigration, and political difference in the classical and contemporary democratic contexts. I am a graduate of Columbia University (B.A., M.A.) and received my Ph.D. from Northwestern University.  Prior to joining the faculty at Chicago, I was an assistant professor of Political Science at California State University, Long Beach and a postdoctoral associate at Yale University's Whitney Humanities Center.
