Joshua Bandoch

Postdoctoral Research Associate
Political Theory Project

 Joshua Bandoch (Ph.D. Political Science, University of Notre Dame, 2012) is a political theorist whose research and teaching interests include liberalism, multiculturalism, and the history of political thought. His dissertation argued for an approach to political theorizing called "political particularism" based on a new interpretation of Montesquieu's political thought. His current book project offers an extended philosophical and historical analysis of this concept of political particularism.

Josh's other research interests include exploring issues in multiculturalism and liberalism, as well as working at the intersection of political theory and public policy. His most recent publication on these themes is a forthcoming chapter entitled “On the Problem of Forming a European Spirit – Montesquieu’s De l’Esprit des lois (1748).”
