My name is Michael C. Hawley. I am currently a Visiting Assistant Professor in the Government and Legal Studies Department at Bowdoin College. Before arriving here, I was a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Political Science at Notre Dame.  I obtained my PhD in Political Science from  Duke University in 2017, specializing in political theory and religion and politics. My dissertation project focused on the philosophy of Cicero and its role in shaping the development of subsequent liberal and republican thought. My other research extends into several different areas, including normative issues in international relations, just war theory, comparative political theory, religion and politics (especially Catholic and Islamic political thought), and American political thought.
