Visiting post-doctoral fellows are a vital part of the center's work. Fellows pursue research within the context of the history of political, legal, economic and constitutional ideas. Fellows present their work, conduct faculty seminars, take part in conferences and teach upper-level courses for the Jepson School.

Aaron HeroldVisiting Research Fellow for 2013-14: Aaron L. Herold

Aaron Herold is the visiting research fellow for the 2013-14 academic year. He studies and teaches political philosophy, and his research focuses on the thought of the liberal Enlightenment and its critics, especially its importance for issues of politics and religion and statesmanship and civic engagement. At the University of Richmond, he is working on a book on the contributions of Locke, Spinoza, and Tocqueville to our ongoing debates about the separation of church and state and the place of religion in public life. In addition, he is writing a series of articles examining the writings of both political philosophers and statesmen (such as Tocqueville and Lincoln) who have drawn attention to the connections between the place of religion and ambition in modern politics.

Prior to coming to Richmond, he taught at Rhodes College and Boston College. He has a B.A. from Emory University, an M.A. from the University of Toronto, and a Ph.D. from the University of Texas at Austin.
