Rosemarie Wagner is a Lecturer on Social Studies. She is a political theorist whose research focuses on the tensions between legal and non-legal exercises of power. Wagner earned a PhD from UC Berkeley in Political Science (2019), an MSc from London School of Economics in Political Theory (2010), and a BA from Tufts in Philosophy & Political Science (2004). She is currently preparing a book manuscript titled, Laws Living and Armed: The Legal and Political Theory of Thomas Hobbes, in which she examines Hobbes’s theory of law and shows it to differ significantly both from how he is most often portrayed, and from his contemporaries. Her next project focuses on early modern theories of equality and fairness; she also has research interests in ancient and modern political thought, as well as contemporary philosophy of law.
