Description:

Please join the Global Theory Workshop as they host Dr. Andrew March from the University of Massachusets Amherst. Session details forthcoming. 

Andrew March's research and teaching interests are in the areas of political philosophy, Islamic law and political thought, religion and political theory, and comparative and non-Western political theory more generally. His first book, Islam and Liberal Citizenship: The Search for an Overlapping Consensus (Oxford, 2009) is an exploration of the Islamic juridical discourse on the rights, loyalties, and obligations of Muslim minorities in liberal politics, and won the 2009 Award for Excellence in the Study of Religion from the American Academy of Religion. Professor March's second book, The Caliphate of Man: The Invention of Popular Sovereignty in Modern Islamic Thought (Harvard, 2019, forthcoming), examines the problem of divine and popular sovereignty in modern Islamic thought through the Arab Spring. He has published articles on Islamic law and political thought, secularism, religion and free speech, religious freedom and the boundaries of marriage in liberal society.
