Menaka Philips

I am an Assistant Professor of Political Science at Tulane University in New Orleans. I first joined Tulane as a Professor of Practice in 2013, with a joint appointment in Political Science and Gender and Sexuality Studies (GESS), and have also served as the Program Director for GESS. I received my PhD in Political Science in 2013 from Northwestern University in Chicago, IL, and have an MA in Political Science from the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada. 

My research and teaching interests include democratic theory, feminist and gender studies, empire and colonial politics, and American political thought.
