About Michael Weinman

Michael Weinman is excited to be joining the Department of Political Science as a Senior Lecturer, beginning August 1, 2023. Weinman (Ph.D. in Philosophy, New School for Social Research, 2005) is an interdisciplinary scholar and teacher whose interests focus on ancient Greek thought, modern Jewish thought, and the history of political thought, as well as the intersections of these three fields. His current monograph project, The Political Theology of Hannah Arendt, is under contract with Edinburgh University Press and is expected to appear in late 2024. Weinman is the author or editor of six earlier books, most recently Hannah Arendt and Politics (Edinburgh University Press, 2022), co-authored with philosopher Maria Robaszkiewicz, and The Emergence of Illiberalism (Routledge, 2020), co-edited with political scientist Boris Vormann. His other recent work includes Plato and the Moving Image, a volume he co-edited with Shai Biderman (Brill, 2019) and The Parthenon and Liberal Education (SUNY, 2018), co-authored with art historian Geoff Lehman, which investigates the Parthenon as an education in the liberal arts.
