Assistant Professor

Anna Jurkevics (PhD Yale, 2017) is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science. Her research is in the fields of critical theory, democratic theory, and the history of German political thought. In her work, she investigates themes related to territory, land, and migration. She also specializes in the political thought of Hannah Arendt.

Her current project, a book manuscript tentatively titled Contested Territory: Land and Democracy Beyond the Bounds of Sovereignty, employs critical theory to challenge the concept and praxis of sovereign territoriality and suggests a non-sovereign approach to territory and borders. Through interrogations of thinkers such as Hannah Arendt, Hegel, Heidegger, Carl Schmitt, the work rethinks the philosophical foundations of sovereigntist geopolitical thought and considers new possibilities for democratic land governance in the global age.
