About Joel

I am proud to have been born and reared in Seattle, Washington, where I graduated from Garfield High School. I received my BA from Carleton College in Northfield, Minnesota, during which time I also studied for a semester in Nuremberg, Germany. At Carleton, I graduated with honors in Political Science and also received honors in musical performance. After college I worked in New York City before moving to Berkeley, California to study Ancient Greek at UC Berkeley and then to Duke University, where I completed an MA and PhD in Political Science. During my tenure at Duke I also returned to Berkeley for intensive study of Latin, studied French in Aix-en-Provence, and traveled back to Carleton College to teach political theory and constitutional law, first as a Visiting Instructor in 2008  and then as a Visiting Assistant Professor in 2010. From July 2010 until July 2014 I held the Julian Steward Chair in the Social Sciences at Deep Springs College. I came to Bryn Mawr College in July 2014, where I was Assistant Professor of Political Science until September 2019. I am now Associate Professor (with tenure).
