Political Theory, Public Law, American Politics
James M. DeLise is an Assistant Professor of Instruction in the Intellectual Heritage Program. He received his Ph.D. in political science from Temple University in 2014. His research focuses on the intersection of political theory, public law, and American politics. He is working on a book-length project that explores the way in which religious and racial identities have been accommodated under a regime of laws in the United States that often attempts to be neutral or blind toward racial, religious, and cultural differences.
