Abstract

Political theorists are doing exciting new work, pushing back boundaries. How can the gap between innovative work in political theory and the teaching of the subject, especially those coming to it for the first time, be narrowed?

I will identify two areas of recent work on the edges - the most challenging and innovative new thinking - of political theory and then raise one or two questions about how these bodies of work can be translated into engaging teaching materials. The two areas are (1) political community and (2) deliberative democracy.
