Before coming to Harvard, Angela Maione was a postdoctoral fellow at the Hannah Arendt Center at Bard College. She spent two years as a graduate student conducting doctoral research at Sciences Po in Paris while earning a PhD in Political Science from Northwestern University. She is interested in the relationship between democratic practice and political institutions in transnational perspective. She enjoys turning to historical texts––especially ones by underappreciated authors of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries––in order to recover overlooked resources for contemporary debate in democratic theory and gender politics. Her work has been published in Theory & Event and the Journal of Gender Studies. She is currently working on a book project that brings the historical political thought of Rosa Luxemburg and Hannah Arendt in conversation with contemporary debate on populism. Dr. Maione has recently completed a book manuscript, titled “Revolutionary Rhetoric: Wollstonecraft’s Transformative Enactment,” on the continued relevance of the political thought of Mary Wollstonecraft to debates on rights and political representation, particularly in relation to democratic gender politics.
