Jayme Lemke

Postdoctoral Research Associate
Political Theory Project

Jayme Lemke (PhD, Economics, George Mason University, 2013) is an economist whose interests include constitutional political economy, public choice, and economic history. The confluence of these interests motivates an ongoing research project in which she analyzes the economic forces behind gender disparate political and legal institutions in 19th century British and United States history. In addition to this project on the economic forces shaping women’s legal status, her other current research interests include understanding political systems as the outcomes of self-governing processes and evaluating alternative methods of understanding these systems.
