Jared is interested broadly in historically situated approaches to democratic theory. His work is at the intersection of intellectual history and political theory. His particular focus is on 19th and 20th century African-American political thought and culture. He is currently working on two projects. The first explores the relationship between the constitutional imagination in 19th and 20th century American Political Thought and African-American struggles for racial justice. The second project explores the economic critiques of 19th and 20th century African-Americans organizing for racial justice. He wants to examine the ways in which 19th and 20th century Anglo-American discourse on liberty inadequately theorizes at the intersection of racial justice and political economy. Sacrificing conceptual specificity for universalism, the Anglo-American tradition betrays the possibility for a more robust critique of American society.
